Eta has leveraged on the power of the internet to call attention to the need for the passage of the Not Too Young To Run Bill[7] [8] in Nigeria. This 'youth inclusive' bill sought to reduce the constitutional age requirement for running for elective office in Nigeria: from 40 years to 30 years for President of the Federal Republic; from 35 years to 30 years for State Governor; from 30 years to 25 years for Federal House of Representatives; and from 30 years to 25 years for State Assembly. The Not Too Young To Run bill was successfully passed into law in the month of May, 2018[9].
