The Lagos State Government has revealed that 4,000 unemployed graduates have been placed on a N40,000 monthly salary for six months. The Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Mrs. Yetunde Arobieke, made this known today, May 5, during the 2021 Ministerial Press Briefing in commemoration of the second year in office of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Arobieke said this was implemented through the ministry’s Graduate Internship Placement Programme (GIPP) intended to address the challenge of unemployment among unemployed graduates in Lagos State.
She said the program, which was planned to last for six months, was meant to expose interns to a particular job, profession, or industry and enhance networking.
