Yesterday, the Senate passed the #NotTooYoungToRun bill and the House of Reps followed suit today. While we await the presidential assent, I am happy for contributing my voice to this cause. This picture was truly worth it after all.
Going forward, I believe we, as youths of this nation will comprehend the signs of time and start doing the needful both for our career and for our nation. Over the years, the problem has not been giving us the opportunity to rule. More or less, the question has centred around the capacity of a young individual to execute the task of holding a public office.
Today, the world looks upon the Nigerian youth to salvage what is left of our common patrimony. Through diligence, hard work and dedication to duty, we can create a Nigeria we can be proud of.
So from your own little space in Lagos, Abuja, Kano, Rivers, Benue or Anambra, start doing! Be that voice that will make a difference and show we are indeed, not too young to run. And ultimately, we shall lead, because we are not too young to lead. We shall lead!
Thanks to Hon. Tony Nwulu MHR for shining the light and sustaining the push till now. Posterity will remember you. Always!
Till we get to the Promised Land, I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
