The Senate advised that if the age limit is removed for qualifications of job seekers, it would allowed competent unemployed Nigerians to be employed into ministeries and other government agencies.
The motion was suggested by Senator Ibrahim Gobir(APC, Sokoto). He said one of the major reason of the population of unemployed Nigerians was the age limit which has limited many competent Nigerians in applying for jobs.
He said also that due to the high rate of unemployment in the country, some job seeks spends up to 10 years looking for jobs and has placed them on disadvantage position.
