FRSC begins recruitment, bars Nigerians with tattoos
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has opened its 2021 job application portal, barring Nigerians with tattoos from the process.
The government establishment on Tuesday announced the development on its verified Facebook page, listing a number of requirements for prospective applicants.
Aside disqualifying persons with body arts, married couples and Nigerians more than 30 years of age are not qualified to apply, according to the job advertisement.
However, applicants up to 35 years will only be considered for the position of medical doctors and articulated vehicle drivers.
Other requirements include computer literacy.
Male applicants are also expected to have a fully expanded chest measurement of 0.87 metres.
An excerpt of the requirement reads, “Applicants heights must not be less than 1.7 metres for male and 1.64 for female.
“Medical and Allied professional must possess current practicing license while lawyers must have been called to bar.”
The barring of persons with tattoos, amongst other requirements could elicit criticisms on the discriminatory conditions of the government job.
Peoples Gazette in March reported that Nigerian banks continued to implement discriminatory and potentially unconstitutional policies of precluding citizens from mid-twenties and above from enrolling for job opportunities in the financial sector.
