Reactions As Senate Asks President Buhari To Review The Age Limit For Job Seekers (See Photos)

Nigeria’s Senate has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to instruct the Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity to review the age limit for job seekers in the country to allow older people gain employment into ministries, departments, and agencies.

The call was sequel to a motion by Ibrahim Gobir (APC, Sokoto East) where he noted that recruitment requirements of MDAs and other private bodies, which set age barriers, “inadvertently excludes and marginalizes skillful and competent prospective applicants...


“Due to the high unemployment rate in the country, many graduates spend up to 10 years seeking employment and this puts them in a disadvantaged position by no fault of theirs.

“Many individuals resort to falsifying their age all in a bid to fall within the required age limit for them to be gainfully employed.

“This development, where a person believes he is unemployable can lead them to embracing criminal activities and further increase the growing crime rate and insecurity in the country..."


Many Nigerians rejoiced to this news as its obvious to them all that the government truly have their interests at heart but also skeptical if the private institutions will also put that into practice so to help curb the rate of unemployment in the country.

What do you think about this? This is actually a welcome development as it will go a long way to help the citizens of Nigeria who couldn't get a job at a young age to still be considered for employment.

This way, everyone had equal opportunity to apply for jobs wherever there are vacancies provided you are qualified to do so.

Age will no longer be a barrier to getting a good job. I really hope the Federal government approves this. This would definitely put a smile on the faces of Nigerians..
