Whenever affidavit of age is mentioned, what comes to one’s mind is ‘oath taken” ‘it has to do with swearing.

[adinserter name=”Block 2″]

Is it right to swear to cover up lies, Most people from the age of 35-45 years who has not be gainfully employed are most likely to fall for this.

[adinserter name=”Block 2″]

Employers make the problem to be severe… Any work advert you hear on the radio or see from media, it usually skips people from the age bracket of 35-40 years.  For example; Banks age limit of employment most time is from the ages 0f 20-28 years, That’s why you see a lot of people who would have been bankers but a driving ‘KEKE NAPEPE’ not that they don’t know what they should do, but because they were considered irrelevant why still fully alive.

Affidavit is strictly a court testimony where you place your hands on the bible and swear that you’re telling the truth and nothing but the truth, why do we like to play with fire; my fear is for Christians who join the multitude to commit this sin. ‘What is the truth in what you swear for?

[adinserter name=”Block 2″]

A Christian lecturer once told me that, he is into lecturing job because he couldn’t get any other Job then because he was 45 years old then, and that he was so scared to swear for what he truly knows that will destroy his faith in God.  To be candid, he is one of the very best lecturers you may think it now.

In Nigeria setting for example; people go to court and declare their age by swearing, after swearing you will receive an original declaration of age certification stamped by the commissioner for oath.

     How true is the age declared in a work place and how it affects work?

There is high rate of unemployment. Nearly a quarter of population is out of work mainly young people aged 15-35 years. Graduates who have learnt the societal goal achieving process will be dumped after high college without having any job, them why won’t crime rate be on the high side.”An idol may they say is the Devil’s workshop”

[adinserter name=”Block 2″]

I agree with Robert Merton, “He opine that; when there is an imbalance between the goals and the means, specifically when society doesn’t provide the means to everyone to accomplish the goals it sets for them some people will be deviants why because they are people in society who are aiming for something that they probably can’t obtain…This automatically leads to crime and other social vices.

  Faults affidavit of age declaration is a weakening factor to our work environment. For example; 5o% of secretariat employee go the job with the lies of false age declaration, most of them are above 75 years of age and supposed to be retired but they are still there curb-webbing seats that should have been occupied by fresh graduates, More so, some of them cannot write or see very well, neither do they have the strength to contribute to the growth of where they work, Rather they are just there eating full salary instead of pension.

     I have seen a woman who lives around my area, but she works as a typist at the secretariat but for two years now, old age is dealing with her this makes her to be reporting to works twice in a week…I don’t know what her contribution will look like in an active work environment .To crown it all, she was even so happy that she boldly told me with a kin laughter on her face that she still have like 5 years and some months before retirement.

If perhaps that 50% is been employed with fake age declaration, it will still block ways for 50% young graduate who would have gained .employment and put their best with hot fresh blood and zeal.

[adinserter name=”Block 2″]

The implication to this is that, if perhaps you get 30% of this type of fake people in all sectors the State will engage in borrowing; or they will enter deficit and most times there will be no money to pay the workers.

If there is a way to checkmate employees age not only by affidavit also via physical strength just like Universities conduct aptitude test after Jamb it will go a long way to help in a work place.
