The members of the Senator Bukola Saraki-led Nigerian Senate have on Wednesday, July 26, passed a bill which proposed a 35-years as the minimum age for the office of the president from the initial 40-years mandated by the 1999 constitution.
The lawmakers also moved a motion to encourage Nigerian youths to contest for the post of Governor or Senator at the age of 30, away from the initial 35 years limit mandated by the 1999 constitution.
It was also gathered that the bill goes on to stipulate that 25-year-olds can now legislate in the National and State House of Assemblies in Nigeria.
The amendments were made during the debate on report for constitution review which had been earlier adopted by the joint session of the committees of both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
NOTE: For the new bill to take effect, it needs the endorsement of 24 state assemblies and President Muhamamdu Buhari's assent. Senate's approval is just one of the steps required to amend the constitution.
