A pro-democracy and good governance organization, the Beyond Boundaries Legacy Leadership Initiative (BBLLI), has hailed the doggedness of Nigerian youth in the build up to the passage of the Not Too Young to Run Bill by President Muhammadu Buhari last week.
BBLLI, in a statement jointly signed by its Executive Director, Comrade Omaga Daniel and the Public Relations Officer, Mpakaboari Numbere, described the passage of the bill as a significant moment in Nigeria’s history.
The organisation also thanked President Buhari for the speedy accent to the bill as promised during his May 29, 2018 Democracy Day address to the nation.
However, BBLLI noted that a lot depends on the youth in terms of agitating for an egalitarian and better leadership at all levels of governance, hence the need for constant engagement of every Nigerian youth as far as formulation and implementation of government policies are concerned.
The group called on Nigerian youths not to relax but take advantage of the bill and avail themselves in taking responsibility to lead at all levels, and to make Nigeria great.
The organization stressed that with the passage of the bill, the stage was now set for the youth of this nation to prove they are not just leaders of tomorrow but partners of today.
BBLLI also called on the government to double its effort towards the security of lives and properties of Nigerians irrespective of ethnic, religious or social affiliation.
“We urge Nigerian youth to rally among themselves in solidarity, and with one voice towards projecting individuals that will stand for the Nigerian dream come 2019 general elections,” the statement read.
