The Nigeria Senate, on Thursday, commenced moves to remove the age bracket specification during recruitment exercises in Nigeria.

The move, sponsored by Senator Matthew Urhoghidee, seeks to unburden recruitment requirements in Nigeria.

The motion became inevitable as the rate of unemployed and underemployed Nigerian graduates is said to have risen from 24.4Million to 26.06Million in 2016 2nd Quarter.

Senator Urhoghide, during the Senate session, argued that Nigerian graduates above certain age brackets should not be allowed to suffer for it as it is not their fault that they weren’t employed earlier.

The Senate, in series tweets, revealed that it has moved to the motion to remove the “undeserved hardship for Job-Seekers in Nigeria.”
