qualification for president was reduced from 40 to 35 years. This effort was spearheaded by the wonderful folks at the Not Too Young to Run (NTYTR) Movement.
Thanks to the one degree of separation between us, I was able to bring one of those wonderful folks (Mr. Mark Amaza) behind the NTYTR movement on the show. In this episode, Mark and I talked a lot about this campaign and he was gracious enough to answer all the questions I presented before him. As a late bloomer to all things politics, I must say that I learned a lot from this episode and I hope this will be the same for you too.
Outro-ish Song: This is Nigeria by Falz; original song by Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino
FUN FACTS ABOUT MARK:
He is a certified Bibliophile and one of his many love languages is Amazon Gift cards *hint hint*
He has an idyllic memory to recall countries and their capitals.
He speaks the Bura language which is spoken mainly in Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe states in Nigeria. The Bura language is a Chadic language and has been reported to contrast a voiceless palatal lateral fricative,  (ʎ̥˔), which is quite rare for languages.
Get more involved in politics or governance, at the least.
