Senate moves to scrap age bracket, experience requirements for job seekers

The Senate on Tuesday began moves to remove the age bracket specification for recruitment and employment of job seekers in the country.

Senator Matthew Urhogide sponsored the motion on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday.

Uroghide while speaking said it was not the fault of applicants that they weren’t employed earlier and should not suffer for it.

The senator also said  age and cognate requirements have lots of negative effects on eligible job applicants.

Senator Stella Oduah also supported the motion, adding that experience barriers should also be scrapped.

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu comments that there is the need for transparency and fairness to fill the few employment opportunities available.

The Senate now resolves to mandate MDAs to de-emphasize age bracket requirements for recruitment of first time applicants.

Senate also urged MDAs to adhere strictly to the Federal Character Principle as it relates to recruitment exercises.
