Nigerian youth complains over the age discrimination in the he recruitment of FRSC.
Most of the applicants are begging the federal government to review the age limit they already stated. This was what they told the News agency. They ask them to move the age limit from 30 years to 35 years.
According to the recruitment requirements candidates who possess a first degree should not be more than 30 years of age also with candidates who are HND holders.
They also stated that candidates with national diploma and it’s equivalent s should not exceed 28 years.
Samuel ogunmolu who is one of the candidate said most of them might not make it to final stage because of the age limit and other requirements.
The youth are crying are crying loud and they do not want to be wasted generations.The are begging the frederal government of Nigeria to consider them .
This country of ours has really taken age limit to be a barrier and a challenge to youth. If one can participate excellently why can’t the government have a review them said.
The bank has also taken this same write to be one of their important requirements. We have no where else to run to the he applicants complain.
Mrs Titilayo Adebayo a married woman who is also an applicant had also complained that the age limit is not just the problem but the marital status is, as one of the requirements includes that married women will be disqualified from the screening excercises she said that the screening procedure was meant for the singles and candidates below 30 years. It is not our fault that we have to go through long strikes in school and wait for sometimes a year before going for youth service and after er this most of us job hunt for years and this is what government want to offer us.
