New FG Recruitment Age Requirement: What Will Be The Fate Of Applicants Above 30 Years

The latest development in government organization recruitment age requirements which is now set between the age of 18 to 30 years which use to be at 35 years maximum requirements  before and not anymore.

Applicants that are above the maximum age requirements for government job are now asking questions regarding their fate in  securing government job. The latest development was the recent 2018 recruitment in the following government establishment:

  • Nigeria prison service 2018 recruitment
  • Federal fire service recruitment
  • And now Federal road safety corps recruitment.

These government organization listed above has set their maximum application age requirements at 30 years. That means if you are above 30 years you are no longer eligible to apply for these government jobs.

If you look at it critically, applicants between the age bracket of 30 to 35 years are the majority seeking for job at the moment. Why the age discrepancy now? Question the government should answer!

We know that citizens can not be hired by government alone and are encouraged to tour the road of entrepreneurship but the fact still remain that not everyone can succeed as an entrepreneur. They will always need someone like a boss to guide them, that's why the labour market will not be empty anytime soon.
