The League of Progressive Ambassadors of
Nigeria (LEPAN) on Wednesday congratulated
young Nigerians for their tenacity as a bill
seeking to reduce the age of candidacy required
to run for elective positions in the country
passed second reading in the House of
Representatives.
The group noted that it received with great
pleasure news that the bill scaled through
second reading and has been committed to the
constitution review committee.
President of the group, Adewunmi Emoruwa said
to the press that the group was encouraged by
the level of interest and support the drive has
received from majority of young Nigerians, and
remarked that it was worthy of note that the
House of Representatives decided to toe the path
of progressiveness as other nations are making
progress through deliberate youth inclusion and
participation.

LEPAN had earlier organized a solidarity rally to
the National Assembly ahead of the sitting where
the bill christened the #NotTooYoungToRun bill
was to be brought up for a second reading at
the National Assembly.
The group was also joined in the rally by Senator
Philip Aduda, representing Federal Capital
Territory in the upper chamber, who endorsed
the petition to reduce the age of candidacy and
pledged his support to the cause whenever it is
brought before the Senate.
