Not Too Young To Run State Coordinators

Celebrating the Not Too Young to Run Movement Strategy Team Members and State Coordinators

The Not Too Young To Run movement is a movement of youth and civil society groups advocating for the reduction of age for running for elective offices to mainstream young men and women in electoral politics. Not Too Young To Run is Nigeria’s largest and most successful youth movement in recent times. The movement is driven by the compelling need to restructure the country’s political system to address the deeply entrenched system of political exclusion and institute inclusive politics, transformative leadership and electoral competitiveness in the electoral process.

Members of the Leadership and Strategy Team of the Not Too Young To Run Movement are responsible for the leadership of the Movement and have represented the Movement at the United Nations, the African Union (AU) and Economic Community of West African State (ECOWAS) meetings among many others.

The Members of the Movement have sacrificed their time, effort and resources, without them the vision for a reduction in the age for political participation would have remained a pipe dream.
