Politicians Over 70 Years To Get Forceful Retirement

Members of the House of Representatives are currently considering a move to prohibit politicians above 70 years from contesting in elections for any political position in the country.

The notion which is sponsored by the Deputy Chief Whip, Honorable Nkeiruka Onyejeocha will amend essential parts of the 1999 constitution, keep a check on the educational qualifications and age of politicians.

The Explanatory Memorandum of the proposed legislation reads;

“Bill seeks to amend Sections 65(2)a, 106(c), 131(b) and 131(d) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) by raising the educational qualifications required for election into the offices of the President, National and State Houses of Assembly in Nigeria.”
 The bill has been referred to the Special Ad-hoc Committee on Constitution Review chaired by the Deputy Speaker, Hon. Idris Wase for further legislative action.
