Federal Government Nationwide Recruitment for Graduate Internship Scheme
The Federal Government of Nigeria through the Public Works, Youth and Women Employment Component of the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Program (SURE-P) established the GIS, which aims to provide the unemployed graduates youths with job apprenticeship opportunities that will expose them to skills and experiences relevant to the current labour market and enhance their employ ability.
The Project Implementation Unit (PIU) is located in the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) and it has been established to have the overall responsibility for the day-to-day project management of the Public Works, Youth and Women Employment (PW/WYE) Component of the SURE – P.One of the most critical and significant social and economic change requirements for Nigeria today is Youth empowerment. Youth unemployment has been reported to be as high as 35% especially among the 18-24 year olds.
