Unemployment: Nigerian Government links 7,000 graduates with firms



Over 170,000 graduates had registered in the schemes database out of which
7,000 had been matched with firms..

The Federal Government said in Jalingo on Monday that it had engaged 7,000 graduates under its SURE-P Graduate Internship Scheme, GIS. 

The Chief Project Officer of SURE-P, Istifanus Bargo, said this at a three-day orientation programme for interns and firms under GIS.

Mr. Bargo explained that over 170,000 graduates had registered in the schemes database out of which 7,000 had been matched with firms.

According to him, the scheme is a
deliberate effort by the federal
government to link unemployed
graduates with firms with a view to
enhancing their skills and employability.

He said federal government paid N30,000 monthly stipends to each intern for one year.

Mr. Bargo appealed to private firms yet to key into the programme to register with the GIS.



He said this would offer opportunities for unemployed graduates already registered under the scheme to acquire skills from them.

The Project Director of GIS, Peter Papua said the programme was “a bridge through which Nigerian graduates would cross over from graduation to the workplace with ease.”

He urged the interns to make best use of the opportunities in building their capacities and warned that fraudulent and
unethical practices would not be
condoned from beneficiaries.
