Speaking at a press conference, the Southwest Coordinator of NYCA, Ogunrinde Oluseyi  also launched the #NoToAncestorPresident and #WeDemandYoungPresident political movement towards the 2023 Presidential election.”

Rising from a two-day interactive session, the youths promised to promote the principles of the Not Too Young to Run law, and the need to promote upward mobility of young people in all the spheres of leadership in the country.

The communiqué which was written at the end of the two day interactive session reads: “That the whole essence of the Not Too Young To Run agitation and the successful passage of the Bill into law was to have a generational leadership change and we applaud the commitment of the President Buhari administration, in this regard.

“That the prohibitive costs of nomination Forms and the current practice of making very old people presidential candidates of political Parties is a direct assault on the Not Too Young To Run Act and block the opportunities for young people.
