Maximum Recruitment age For Fresh Graduates should be 35 Years

54 supporters 1000
It is very unfortunate for must of us who attained the age of 30 before graduating from the Universities/Polytechnics.The delay could be as a result of ASUU/ASUP Strikes, Inability  of some of our parents to send us to school on time because of the economic situation of the country etc. We went to school to acquire knowledge and earn a living after graduation.To serve our fatherland, just like the children of the elites who went to school on time, some even abroad, and graduated at the age of 19/20 years. The Maximum age for recruitment into most of the Government Agencies/Ministries is now 30. What else can we do to earn a living? To become Thugs? Fraudsters? or what? Are we not Nigerians? What are the ages of President, Governors,Senators,Reps CEOs etc. Please something should be done if Nigeria belong to all of us.

Reasons for signing

Abdullahi Sani

Age barrier shouldn't be given relevance for the employees, because of the obvious reasons

Usman Bara'u Yanmota

The issue of getting credits in mathematics and english language and mass failure on the stated subjects especially in the north is another reason. I graduated from secondary school since 1999 but, couldnt get admission in to the university simply because i dnt have credit on maths and english. I finally get those credits in 2018. Am now seeking for admission in to the university and am today 38 years of age.

Yateem Yaro

Age shouldn't be a barrier in scuring a job in MDAs in nigeria because to be a graduate in nigeria is something worth celebrating no matter how old are u attained it.

Olujide Olusola

The banks are even the worst where they request for people under the age of 25 years. How is that possible in current situation in Nigeria to have graduates especially from public universities

Shamsu Abba Indabo

ASUU has the major problem in delaying students to graduate.


the problem is both the govt and our universties. firstly why every year most of the masses fail in their examination , that's one govt must therefore focus on it... and secondly why all our universties did not give admmission directly to the masses untill they follow some process . this is the problem that delay us...we masses to graduate on time....

Abdullahi Wada

Your reason for signinig (optional)the problem is not becouse our parents don't enroll us to educational system as early as possible. its the bad government of our country

adamu yahaya

Tahir Albashir

It's true because ASUU/ASUP has made the years for graduation unpredictable.

Muhammad Awwl Hassan

My reason is a very unfortunate for a country like Nigeria, saying the minimum age to secure a job is 30 to 35. Which is unfair and is not favourable.
