Is The Age Limit Factor On Job Helping The Nation Or Deteriorating It? by remsonik(f): 1:21pm On Jul 11, 2023
In our country today we have a lot of people with alot of challenges on the age limit factor on jobs. I myself am in this line, you apply for a job which fits your qualifications, you've all the necessary skills, with several years of experience in that field. You've met all the necessary requirements and your age is the only limitation as most jobs nowadays if you're above 27 years old you can't get it. Almost everyone in the civil service and political office holders in this country are falsifying their age which is not promoting truthfulness, honesty, trust, integrity and loyalty. Which is why many people who went to school and got well learned in Nigeria today regret it.

They want you to go to school early, but most people don’t go to schools early because they don’t have the facilities or the resources, so some have to grow up and make their money before going to school and after getting the qualification, you tell them that their age is beyond the employment age. What do you think will be the hope of such people?

My take is that we should remove age limitation as a factor in employment, and look at what people can do, their ability. If we can start with that, who will want to falsify their age? Then, we can have a retirement age and make it competitive for people to show what they can do. The government should create job opportunities and remove the age embargo so that people can go to where they can fit in and where they can function.
