The Bill is a step in the right direction and this has shown that we young leaders have been granted the golden opportunity to form part of the political government of our country.But i have my reservations on this.

1.How can we ensure this bill will not be abused by youths, considering the fact that several youth organizations exists for different reasons?..How can we also have a platform that will allow young people to support a visionary young leader going for an elective position.

2.Secondly to add to the bill, the senate approved an independent candidature- which means that as a young person you can contest for a position without belonging to a political party....while we are celebrating ,this is the time to have a synergy of various youth groups and work towards sustaining this bill.

Also i think 2019 general election will serve as a litmus test for this bill...how we young people will handle  it  will determine the future of politics in Nigeria.

Lest us not forget, we have a very huge task ahead of us.....the work starts now.

Perfect step! Next should be unity among youths, because we fight ourselves too much and cannot see that we need each other to get to where we should be going. If we don't, we're going to be easy puppets in the hands of these elders, and no difference would have been made.

Can we say the young people of Nigeria are ready to assume leadership?

If YES, do the young people have the capacity, patriotism, integrity, accountability, nationalism and other positive societal values?

The bill first will need to pass through various platforms before it can become a law and be removed link we must not be over excited because considering the kind of politics practiced in Nigeria, every action is removed link

My worries is removed link

removed link of these politicians can capitalize on this bill to start projecting their sons and daughters for elective removed link

removed link young person will start thinking that this gives them the opportunity to wake up one day and start contesting for a position without duly preparing for leadership .

removed link we dont handle it well, various youths groups with a negative motive will start springing up and this may cause more harm than removed link

removed link political system doesnt yet have a structure that will make this bill work when it is eventually passed into removed link daily we see leaders moving from one political party to another,even inter party tussle and removed link

removed link INEC prepared to handle the pressure that will come with the passage of this bill? remember the youths constitutes the highest population of removed link

While we are happy to achieve this giant removed link there is need to have a critical thinking and proper planning to make the best out of this removed link
