Lagos tackles graduate unemployment with internship scheme.
The Lagos State Government has reiterated its commitment to increasing the employability skills of graduates by creating opportunities for them to become empowered and employed.
The Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Mr Babatunde Durosinmi-Etti, said this during an induction programme for the graduates of the internship scheme on Thursday. He said, “About 250 beneficiaries have been taken up for an internship by our up-takers, who are our partners, out of the 2,000 we have in the first set.
“We introduced this scheme because we need something to stimulate them to redesign that ecosystem, and that is why we decided as a government to invest in a transparent and inclusive process, and also let them know that this is very competitive.”
