With the aim of reducing the high rate of unemployment in Lagos State, governor Sanwo Olu has approved the internship programs for 4000 unemployed graduates.
Speaking with newsmen recently, the Honorable Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment in the person of Mrs Yetunde Arobieke said that the programme is supposed to help candidates gain work-ready skills that’ll help them secure employment.
The Internship Programme will be addressing the third and fourth pillars of the present administration’s T.H.E.M.E.S agenda, which are Education and Technology and Making Lagos a 21st Century Economy, while the beneficiaries will be paid a monthly stipend of N40,000 for the six months duration of the internship.
Mrs Yetunde revealed that after the period of internship, the candidates would have gained good work experience, and would have been exposed to entrepreneurial opportunities.
The Commissioner, implored interested candidates to apply through the link for the programme: gipplasg.lagosstate .gov .ng, stressing that interested applicants must possess NYSC Certificates or letters of exemption, and must be registered residents of the State with Lagos State Residents Registration Agency, LASRRA.
