Over years now, Nigerians had been facing problems of unemployment in the country. There are many issues that led to the high-rate of unemployment in the country, and one of the major problem is age limit.
Many Nigerians cannot apply for jobs in Nigeria due to age limits. This was caused by the high-rate of unemployments as some of these Nigerians must have been seeking for jobs over years till their age have passed the limit required for jobs, in which at the end, they won't be able to apply for some certain jobs.
Yesterday, being 15 July, the Senate has urges Nigeria President, President Muhammadu Buhari to look into the issue of unemployment in the country as many job seekers found it difficult to apply for jobs due to age limits, which is one of the major problem that led to the high-rate of numbers of unemployed Nigerians.
It was also noted that one of the major reasons to the high rate of crimes or its equivalent in the country was due to age limits and also unavailability of jobs in the country as many Nigerians found it very difficult to apply for jobs due to age limits.
Therefore, the Senate is asking for removal of age limit by recruitment agencies and ministries so that unemployed Nigerians can gainfully be employed into some positions
It was a point of order raised by Senator Ibrahim Gobir (APC Sokoto) at plenary which was tagged as "Urgent need to review age barriers for job seekers during recruitment and employment exercise."
