2019 NNPC Recruitment 'Discriminatory' As Lawyer Threatens To Drag NNPC To Court by ProsperChild: 6:35am On Mar 28, 2019
An Abuja-based lawyer, Mr Pelumi Olajengbesi, has threatened to drag the management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to court following what he described as “discriminatory” recruitment process.

Olajengbesi, in a letter addressed to the Group Managing Director, NNPC, Dr Maikanti Baru, on March 26, vowed to approach the court to ensure protection of the fundamental rights of Nigerians who were qualified to apply but were barred from participating because of age criteria.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the criteria for Graduate Trainee among others require applicants to have graduated from an accredited University/Polytechnic/Monotechnic not earlier than 2014.

The criteria also requires that applicants must not be more than 28 years of age as at Dec. 31, 2018.

Olajengbesi, however, pointed out that the criteria and process violated section 3(e)(iv) of the Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedure), 2009 which protected the public interest of Nigerians.

“Following the advertisement for the 2019 NNPC recruitment for Graduate Trainee, Experienced Hires, Senior Officers and Supervisory Cadre on your official website, dated March 13, 2019 of which the criteria for application include that an applicant must not be above the ages of 28, 34 and 37 respectively.

“I wish to express outright disapproval on the above set criteria used by the Corporation in the ongoing recruitment as being discriminatory, segregatory and exclusive to the disadvantage of qualified Nigerians who may wish to participate in the process.

“My disapproval of this age discriminatory recruitment process is anchored on the provision of Section 42 of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), which stops any person, organisation or body from discriminating against any citizen of Nigeria,” Olajengbesi said in the letter.

According to him, the action of NNPC also violates section 17(3) of the Nigerian constitution which provides for the opportunity of securing adequate means of livelihood and abhors all unequal processes in the labour process.

“The NNPC as a federal entity must be at the vanguard of safeguarding and justifying this provision through its dealings with the public.

“It is rather disheartening that an esteemed Corporation such as NNPC has set itself on the path of total disregard of constitutional provisions, while being an agent of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

That's not all, graduates with 2nd class lower must have masters degree... Omygudness who does that?
Just make the minimum requirements 2nd Class Upper like that of the Nigerian AirForce it sounds more decent and understandable.

Mods catapult this thread to the front page. Good move by such a fine lawyer.

I implore the federal government to halt the recruitment process and mandate NNPC to start all over, this time the criteria should not be discriminatory or segregatory.

You guys are funny, graduate trainee positions are meant to recruit from a pool of fresh graduates, and no top organisation will make its requirement the very bare minimum.

And hey, these criterias help bring down the number of candidates a recruiter has to deal with. Las Las they can't take everyone, so why for example should they have to deal with the extra cost? And before you take your frustration out on me, I have been a victim of this so called age discrimination. But the reality on ground, has ensured we now have to live with these things.

You can't even apply when you graduate earlier than 2014. That means those that graduated 2013 downward cannot apply despite meeting the age criterion.

NNPC is a very corrupt organization.

Lawyer seeking cheap attention to advertise himself. Among all the oppressions the poor and less privilege are facing on daily basis including those behind bars for years who have never been arraigned in the court, it is NNPC recruitment criteria that attracts his fancy.


Some nairalanders are dummy for praising mediocrity. I am a lawyer and I know these type of men. They have only their interest at heart.

Besides, it is prerogative of NNPC HR to invite whoever they want for interview. They may even choose to discard applications of all 1st class applicants and invite 2nd class lower. So what's the purpose of dragging a recruiter to court when he or she could still discard all applicants above the age they require.

THE MINIMUM SHOULD BE HND LOWER CREDIT AND BSC SECOND CLASS LOWER.

There should be no masters degrees.

Those who have masters degrees should go to the educational institution and take up lecturer jobs.

There should also be no age discrimination age should be left out.

BOTH HND AND BSC DEGREES SHOULD BE EQUIVALENT.

As they both go for Nysc after tertiary studies.

Why come and discriminate at the point of employment.

NA ONLY IN NIGERIA POLICY MAKERS ARE SHOWING THEIR OVER SABI AND OVER TOO KNOW!
