Adegbe said each of the 50,000 participants to be recruited for the internship programme would earn N25,000 monthly.

“The interns are expected to acquire professional skills, training and work experience to improve their job-placement opportunities.

“The Federal Government will be responsible for paying monthly stipends to them, while participating institutions will be expected to provide adequate opportunities for training and mentoring,” he said.

Adegbe said that the scheme would enhance chances of the 50,000 unemployed graduates through improvement on their skills during the internship programmes .

He urged the graduates to ensure that they registered for the scheme. (NAN)
