President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that he will be signing the “Not Too Young to Run” bill into law very soon.
The president revealed this while addressing the nation on Tuesday, Democracy Day.
He said: “In few days to come, I will be joined by many promising young Nigerians to sign into law the “Not Too Young to Run” Bill.”
