Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has given his opinion about the #NotTooYoungToRun bill which was signed by President Buhari yesterday.
According to him, the bill which is to allow youths contest for political positions as high as the presidential office, is not in favor of President Buhari.
Governor Fayose stated that president Buhari is too old to run in 2019 and should give way for younger Nigerians to take over.
Fayose stated this in a series of tweets he made this morning via his official twitter handle.
His tweets reads:
The future of Nigeria belongs to the youths and we must handover the country to them without restrictions. If at 18, you are old enough to choose, you must also be seen as old enough to be chosen.
Today in Ekiti, the PDP Deputy governorship candidate is 39 year old. He became chairman of Ado LG at 35. On the contrary, the APC deputy governorship candidate is 74 year old. He was chairman of Ado LG 25 years ago.
Lastly, our President who signed the “Not Too Young To Run” should be reminded that at his very old age, he is also “Too old To Run.” He should leave the stage for the younger generation of Nigerians.
