Senator Jonah Jang at the weekend reportedly said the Nigerian Senate is for people with experience and not for younger people.

While speaking in an interview at the weekend, the senator representing Plateau North said he will not hand over to a younger person in 2019 as according to him, the “Senate is not for young people.”

The former governor’s statement was directed at his political proteges who are warming up to contest for the Senate seat in the next general elections in the hope that Jang who is over 70 might not re-contest.

According to Vanguard, the Senator said that young people should start from the House of Reps, as “the Senate is not good for young people, only the House of Representatives is good enough.”

There are also indications that some of them are ready to slug it out with the senator in the event that he does not retire from politics as they believe “his political weight has diminished since he left the Plateau Government House as governor and that he can be defeated giving the new realignments in the state.”
