Financial encumbrance  May constitute a major factor for youths to take on  leadership role  following  president Muhammadu Buhari’s  Assent to the not too young to run bill.
Some stakeholders made the disclosure while speaking  with  Orangefm in Akure on the financial strength of the youth to muster the needed courage to contest elective positions in nigeria.
It would be recalled that, shortly after president Muhammad buhari assented to the not too young to run bill, so many young and vibrant youths  started showing interest in the highest office in the country  while some settled for other elective  positions.
Bearing in mind, the role money can  play in the  electionering process, a student union leader Olufemi Ibrahim  who shared his experience as a young student politician explained that,irrespective of some other unforseen challenges, the bill has given a  platform  for the youth to demonstrate their readiness in taking  leadership role.
Speaking on this development, a historian and public affairs analyst Dr Afe Adedayo who traced youths  active participation in politics to  the first republic encouraged young  politicians to horn their skills and careers profeciently before venturing into politics.
While speaking on the legal perspective , A legal practioner, Yemi Aladetoyinbo said with or without financial muscle, youths can now demonstrate their political prowess through  elective positions.
Others encouraged the youths to review and study what young politicians did in the first and second republic to succeed  in  their quest to  contribute their quota to national development.
