The Media Blog: This statement from the Sokoto NUJ chairman is nothing but stupidity

Please don’t DM us. Stupidity is as stupidity does.

“How can you imagine a 25-year-old person becoming a state governor and expect good positive administration.”

The chair of the Sokoto chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Malam Isah Abubakar-Shuni today said the National Assembly made a mistake by passing the #NotTooYoungToRun amendment.

According to this specimen, “maturity and experience” are necessary for leadership and allowing young people to occupy strategic positions might endanger democracy in the country.

You see the kind of foolish thinking that masquerades as wisdom in the corridors of power in and Nigerian government?

Simple question, Mr Shuni: What has all the ‘maturity’ we’ve had since independence done for us?

What kind of mess are we in in a country when an educated adult male can make this kind of a senseless statement?
