#NotTooYoungToRun Rally Storms Abuja For Buhari (PHOTOS)
This may not be a good time to be the president of Nigeria.
So much pressure seems to be on president Muhammadu Buhari at the moment.
The herdsmen, who have now confirmed they are no respecter of the president, struck at Nzharuvo community of Basa Local Government Area last Thursday night killing five, barely 24 hours after the official launch of a five year road map for peace strategy in Plateau State by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Four days later, 25 people were killed in an attack carried out by suspected herdsmen in Dundu village, Kwall District in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau.
In addition to the bad situation, less than 24 hours after United States of America’s Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson visited Buhari in Abuja, he was sacked by president Donald Trump on Tuesday on his return home.

As if all these were not enough, protesters stormed Abuja on Wednesday to urge the president to sign the #NotTooYoungToRun bill.
The #NotTooYoungToRun Bill seeks to alter the Section 65, 106, 131, 177 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) to reduce the age qualification for the office of the President from 40 years to 30 years; Governor 35 to 30, Senate 35 to 30, House of Representatives 30 to 25 and State House of Assembly 30 to 25.
The Bill also seeks to introduce independent candidacy into Nigeria’s electoral process.
