VIDEO: Melaye woos angry ‘not too young to run’ campaigners

Dino Melaye, Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory, has addressed angry youths protesting the alleged removal of a bill that seeks to reduce the constitutional age requirement for running for elective positions.

The youths are demanding that the bill, which has sparked a ‘not-too-young-to run’ campaign, be passed by both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Among other things, the bill proposes that the current age requirement for running for the office of the Presidency be reduced from 40 to 35 years while that of the Senate be reviewed from 35 to 30 years.
