In UK, you dare not advertise a job and put age restriction, people will sue your Ass off. That's regarded as discrimination.

Joke of a country, where a school is protesting spending 3yrs in the same level, some denied going for service only for HR to frustrate the fortunate graduates will ridiculous age requirement.

Isn't it funny the age requirement is different from that of Rwanda, just the way the price of Dangote cement is way cheaper in other African countries than here in Nigeria?

Dangote cement is not cheaper in other countries. This assertion has been clarified.

And Rwanda is a different economy with a much less competitive work force, which is why the age condition can be less restrictive.

They made me stop applying for jobs. Imagine I was called for an interview in Access bank Ojota early this year and during the interview session, the interviewer called me Grandpa after knowing my age and ask me to leave that the job is for 24 or 26 with Msc. No be their fault an. I was so hurt, and I swear not to apply for any job again. I am learning painting trade, and already earning than most of their staff

I will not blame the bank rather it is our educational system that needs to be fixed.

In other climes, 25 year olds are already PhD holders because they have an educational system that is devoid of obstacles like strike , frustration from lectures etc

All things been equal at 22 you are supposed to have graduated and even done with NYSC.

The issue here is best practice not one country being a standard for others.

The mobile phone you are using is also Foreign not made in Naija. but you use it, its not the standard but a necessity and makes life easier. why restrict age and bury competence in job applications

I recently saw a job advert for Access Bank entry level for Rwandans, and to my greatest suprise its age requirement is below 30. I nearly weep for my 26 year old friend who applied for the same role here in Nigeria (Graduate Trainee for Nigerians) that got rejected after passing through all the phases of the recruitment. She got rejected at the documentation stage because she was above 24 (yes ooo! 24). Although she was aware of the age requirement, but she made that application thinking the age requirement mighty be waived since she's just 26. To cut the long story short she did not make it past the documentation stage.

Recently I was going through this website called opportunity for Africans, and I saw access bank entry-level recruitment for Rwandans and the age requirement is below 30. This made me to see why most Nigerians often falsify their age.

That's why It's called shiiiithole lol, Well you are highly and cordially welcome to shiiiithole, The world capital of Poverty. Enjoy.....

Okay, and what makes the UK practice the best practice?

There are obvious reasons why entry level jobs are reserved for a certain age range.

1. This is to ensure that you are able to provide more value to the company I'm the long run. Now imagine hiring a 50 year old for an entry level job which involvesuch training. In a few years he will retire, and you will cease to reap the benefits of your training.

2. The Nigeria market is over saturated. If allowed, all these jobs can be filled by experienced hires. So which jobs around competent you g graduates do?

3. Following on from the above, there are too many applicants and age restrictions help to reduce the burden on hiring managers.

Note that the organization needs to hire as meets it's needs not yours.

Nigerians don't falsify their ages when it to employment so please remove that part from your comment because you're destroying opportunities for Nigerians who intend to work abroad.

Aren't most jobs in Nigeria advertized with a max of 26 yrs of age, as a requirement for application ?

A lady once told me "you know Nigerians now, if you don't add the age limit, one 40 yr old papa will come and be applying." I was :/.... and so ?

Of all the practices I've seen in my Nigerian adult life, this is perhaps the weirdest. Later, they will start saying "lazy adults," as the youths mature into their 30s. Lol.

Its because we dont have labor laws here. Most of the things banks do here in naija can't be done in other African countries because of their strong labor laws.

I'm not defending their hiring practices or anything.
I just wanted to correct the bolded.
Access Bank is actually the highest paying Bank in Nigeria.
They pay their entry level staff almost 260k monthly (aside from the other bonuses, allowances, profit sharing, etc that's standard for bank staff), plus a car (financed by your salary).
That's more than the amount seasoned staff get in many other industries and government parastatals.
