Dogara Assures Nigerians To Keep Promise To Support Passage Of Not Too Young To Run Bill


Following objection over the asserted expulsion of the Not Too Young To Run Bill in the Constitution
Amendment Report which was portrayed by House of Representatives on Thursday, Speaker Yakubu Dogara, has guaranteed Nigerians that the bill was not expelled from the report which will be considered one week from now.He also reaffirmed his support for youth inclusion in politics, saying the House will live up to the promise it made to do all within its powers to pass the Bill.


"The young people should be informed that we made a promise and we will keep to our promise, by God's grace," Dogara assured.


He made the remarks during plenary on Thursday, following a clarification on the matter by the chairman of the House of Representatives Adhoc Committee on Review of the Constitution, Deputy Speaker, Hon Sulaimon Yussuf Lasun.


The deputy speaker had explained that rumours spreading that the bill was removed at the retreat of the joint Committee of the Senate and House of Representatives on Review of the Constitution was false.


He, however, further explained that though the Bill was retained, the title was changed, which could be the reason why it was thought to have been expunged.


Speaker Dogara has on several occasions, assured that he supports youth inclusion and participation in politics and other spheres of endeavour.
