Group urges Buhari to sign age reduction bill
The group also urged the National Assembly to without further delay, transmit the Bill, which is part of the items on the Constitutional amendment to the President for assent.
Mr. Samson Itodo, who spoke on behalf of over 40 youths and civil societies groups from across the country, said the president should live up to his promises by assenting to the Bill.
He added such would pave way for the youths’ inclusion in the governance of the country.
Itodo expressed the resolve of the group to set aside Wednesday 14th of this month as a “National Day of Action on Presidential Assent” aimed at achieving the objective.
The Constitution Amendment Bill was transmitted from the state Houses of Assembly to the National Assembly for onward transmission to President Buhari as the next and final stage in the constitution amendment process of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria, as amended.
