The Constitution of the Republic of Nigeria states that a person must be at least 35 years of age before he or she can become governor of a country. But it is very difficult to remember the 5 Nigerian rulers who have now reached 30. So many Nigerians complain that leadership in this country is being restored only among a few parents, and I personally agree with that view. Now you may be skeptical of the proposal, but after reading this article, you will see that almost every ruler in Nigeria is old. Many Nigerian rulers are happy to be elected because they are still young.
