Lagos state is offering paid internship with 40,000 naira stipend for 4,000 unemployed graduates

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has approved Internship Programme for 4,000 unemployed graduates. This is part of the efforts of the Lagos State Government to reduce the rate of unemployment in the state.

Speaking recently on the programme with journalists, the Honourable Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Mrs Yetunde Arobieke, said the initiative was in line with the T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda of the present administration and the Youth Development Programme of the state.

Arobieke said the Internship Placement Programme, GIPP, was designed to give candidates the opportunity to develop employability and work-ready skills that are needed in securing gainful employment.

She added that the “Internship Programme will be addressing the third and fourth pillars of the present administration’s T.H.E.M.E.S agenda, which are Education and Technology and Making Lagos a 21st Century Economy, while the beneficiaries will be paid a monthly stipend of N40,000 for the six months duration of the internship.”

Arobieke also stated that at the end of the internship period, interns would have gained valuable applied work experience, built up their professional skills and would have been exposed to possible entrepreneurial opportunities to strengthen their professional skills and interpersonal relationship.

The commissioner therefore, implored interested candidates to apply through the dedicated link for the programme: gipplasg.lagosstate.gov.ng, stressing that interested applicants must possess National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Certificates or letters of exemption, and must be registered residents of the state with Lagos State Residents Registration Agency, LASRRA.

While informing that over 50 off-takers have shown interest in having the Interns work in their organisations, Arobieke maintained that the selection process will be transparent as successful candidates after taking an online test will be trained on employability skills for two weeks and evaluated; “they will, subsequently, be placed on six months paid Internship with Private organisations and selected public agencies in line with their qualifications.”
