Bill to Stop Age Discernment against Job Seekers

A Bill to put an end to age discrimination of Job Seekers.


At the House of Representatives, a bill seeking to stop age discrimination/restrictions against job seekers in the Federal Government Agencies has effectively passed its second reading.

Hon. Sergius Ogun,  a member of the House of Representatives sponsored the bill, which seeks to put an end to the system of invalidating job seekers on account of their age, who are ordinarily qualified for positions in the Federal Government agencies.

He said,“The rationale for this bill is to ensure that no artificial barrier is allowed to preponderate over merit, which rarely has anything to do with age.”

He added, that it is common to see job adverts, requesting for applications for employment and pegging the age between 25 and 28 years for entry level.

Speaking on his opinion, he said that, the system only helps to widen the unemployment gap in the country and must be reassessed.
