We have deliver our promise by passing the not too young to run bill – Ekweremadu

The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu has
commended President Muhammadu Buhari for assenting to the
Bill for an Act to alter the provisions of the 1999 constitution to
reduce the age qualification for some political offices.
He said that the National Assembly had delivered on its promise.
Ekweremadu, who is also the Chairman of the Senate Committee
on the Review of the 1999 Constitution, said the new amendment
to the constitution would open up the political space for the
Nigerian youth, urging them to capitalise on it to take their proper
place in the scheme of things.
He, however, urged President Buhari to also attend to other
Constitution Amendment Bills awaiting his assent, describing them
as critical to the good governance of the nation.
He said: “I am happy for the Nigerian youth and congratulate them
on this new vista of political relevance and attainments.
“We have delivered on our promise and it is my hope that the youth
will capitalise on it to take their rightful place in the governance of
the country. As I have always maintained, today, not tomorrow,
belongs to the youth. It is theirs to organise and mobilise to take it.
“I commend President Muhammadu Buhari for assenting to the Bill
to motivate our youth to start preparations for the 2019 elections.
However, I equally urge him to assent to the remaining Bills
already transmitted to him, including the Bill seeking financial
autonomy for State Houses of Assembly.
