May 29, 2018
LAGOS, Nigeria – Nigeria’s president says he will soon sign a law to lower the age qualifications for elected officials.
President Muhammadu Buhari says in a nationwide broadcast to mark the country’s Democracy Day that the new law will lower the minimum age qualification for president from 40 to 35. The age limit for governors and senators will be lowered from 35 to 30.
In a country where a majority of citizens are 30 years old or younger, there has been growing clamor for more inclusion in politics.
