Prison Recruitment: Dilemma Of Age Falsification by Stopcomplaining(m): 8:49am On May 03, 2018
Hello Nairalanders I need honest opinion pls:

It is very common that people do false declaration of age, for age advantage, to get Government job in Nigeria. My father did that, if not for his age reduction during his recruitment, he would have been retired by now, because he is already 60 but still in the service, where as, the law says that civil servant are to be retired by age 60, either 35 years service is reached or not. Or you can only spend 35 years in service before age 60.

My Dad, who is also a senior ranked officer in Nigeria Prison Service, is of the strong opinion that I must reduce my age in this prison recruitment. He says at my age, I will have been retired(clock 60) before spending 35 years service. As a result he expects me to cut my age by 5

The issue is I don't give a Bleep about working in Nigeria civil service for 35 years for personal reasons and ambitions. Nigeria should give me accolade if I can endure 30 years in their system, my opinion though.

Besides, by principle, I don't believe in falsification just to gain advantage of 5 more years in service. Moreover, I have this fear that I might be caught if I follow Dad's order because all of my documents have age synchrony. For example

1. My WAEC certificate has my age boldly written on it. (I told dad, he said I shd use NECO result that has no age inscription)

2 My degree Certificate has my date of birth boldly inscribed on it.

3. Nigeria of today has BVN and NIN, of which i used my normal age, and since NIN number is asked for the registration, i'm afraid one might not be able to circumvent.

My Dad is stern, highly opinionated, believes he's always right at all time, you don't dare argue with him, he knows also I can be stubborn as well, so he has been on my neck, calling me everyday to remind me that i must reduce my age. (Meanwhile i'm a medical graduate going for the Supretendent cadre)

What should i do? I need suggestions and advice, as i'm in a dilemma of offending my Dad for life cos he hardly forgives offence. or can I falsify age without being caught in my situation? Or am i Just being stupid and childish? I need help and and mature contribution pls.

Wise decision do not falsify your age for whatsoever reasons

I believe you are not a small boy who is being directed on what to do by your father, they can be sterned sometimes but just stick to your stand and whenever he asked you just tell him working for 5yrs or retiring earlier won't affect your future.

Let him know you represent a better nigeria

Do you want to feature in a drama called scandals? There's a way that falsification will get back at you. Whatever you enjoy now will just be brought-forward gratification.

You know Nigeria has bad belle people. Even when you do legit stuff, they look for holes. You now want to feed the troll with these actions. Mba

You may say but not easily. How many politicians today use their real age? Same applies to most senior civil servants especially in the military and paramilitary. Even Buhari, we dont know his age, I think its the problem of the system that allows loopholes which citizens love to exploit. In the U.S or Europe it is not easy to falsify age if you were born there cos of their data capture system. To me anyway, these are petty reasons to be dishonest, life is more than spending more time in civil service.

Because corruption is pervasive and the whistle-blower is not yet to blow. Those who want to snitch will snitch when they want to. Not everyone is interested in your progress which is why I said it's better not to feed the trolls. Falsify and you'll give them enough to latch on to. Don't you observe the way our bloggers dig up rubbish and make it look meaningful and our people jump into conclusions? That's the society we are in today.

Age falsification! This reminds of my social studies teacher in school. He died like less than 10 years after retirement but I was shocked when I saw the age on his obituary poster, 81years shocked shocked
There was a time his family members came to the school complaining to the principal that the man ought to have retired but he was still in service then embarassed embarassed
Keep resting in peace Panku
