As part of efforts to fight unemployment among educated youths, the Federal government is to expend N2 billion on Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS) before the end of the year.

GIS Project Director Dennis Chukwu broke the news yesterday in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, during a career development and entrepreneurship skills training for interns.

Chukwu revealed that the scheme, being funded by the Federal Ministry of Finance, is training about 2,000 graduate interns across the country on skills and career development aimed at making them employers of labour, rather than being job seekers.

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration decided to sustain the scheme initiated by the his predecessor, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, owing to his desire to banish unemployment ravaging the potentials of graduates by exposing them to trainings and opportunities in every sector of the economy.
