Five star music singer KCEE has declared his interest to pursue a political ambition as a governor of Anambra State.
The 39 year old singer whose full name Kingsley Chinweike Okonkwo (born 18 April 1979) declared his interest today aftermath the passing of the ‘Not to young to run’ bill by the senate recently. He is yet to declare under which political banner he is to run.
The bill allows young people to participate in the governing of the nation. The age requirements allows Nigerian youths to contest for President at the age of 35 and Governor or Senators at the age of 30. It is a change from the initial 40 and 35 years limit respectively, which was mandated by the constitution.
The bill also stipulates that 25-year-old people, can now legislate in the National and State Assemblies across the country.
The Anambra election campaign starts 18th August, 2017.
