SURE-P to pay unemployed graduates 25 thousand naira monthly.

The Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P) has set aside N15 billion to pay allowances of unemployed graduates participating in its Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS).

Head of its GIS, Akubo Adegbe, disclosed this to newsmen in Minna on Sunday.

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

He said the scheme was aimed at providing
participants with requisite experience in
various disciplines preparatory to securing
jobs.

Mr Adegbe said the graduates would be
placed in firms and organisations, non-
governmental organisations and selected
government agencies on a one-year
internship.

“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.

Mr 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.
