Why Age Reduction For Political Office Is NOT Enough...

Recently, a bill promoted by some young Nigerians to reduce the age for running for policial office in the country passed its second reading in the House of Representatives.

The bill which seeks to reduce the minimum age bracket for running for political office to 25 years was made popular via the hashtag #NotTooYoungToRun on social media.

With much applause and acclaim, and at the risk of sounding like an Oliver Twist, I choose to differ.
