Just one week after the Nigerian senate passed the Not Too Young To Run bill, which seeks age reduction for elective offices in the country, Nigerian musician, Gabriel Oche Amanyi popularly known as Terry G, has entered the Benue state governorship race.
Recall that the Red Chamber on July 26, passed the Not Too Young To Run bill, which seeks age reduction for elective offices through electronic votes.
The votes which was conducted through an electronic system, showed that eighty six (86) lawmakers backed the bill, ten (10) were against it.
Though the bill will only become operative after they have been passed by at least twenty four (24) state houses of assembly and two-thirds of the national assembly, three entertainers, Yul Edochie (Nollywood actor), Kcee and Terry G (Nigerian musicians) have shown interest in the governorship race of their prospective states.
While Yul Edochie and Kcee are vying for the number one position in Anambra state, Terry G in the other hand has picked himself as the governor as well as the deputy for the forthcoming election in his state (Benue).
Terry G has also noted on his campaign poster which has gone viral on net that there will be problem if he does not win. The threat also also followed campaign promises of providing good roads, water supply, power stability, the poster also went on to say that ‘everything will be fair and legalized’.
