SURE-P: FG To Engage 2,000 Graduates In Rivers


Federal Government is set to sign up 2,000 graduates in Rivers State for its Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS), under the Subsidy Re-Investment and Empowerment Programme, SURE-P.

This was made known yesterday by Peter Papka, Director, SURE-P GIS, at the opening of the Graduate Internship Opportunities Fair in the state, which he said was a forum for firms and graduates to interact.

“We are doing this internship fair to create an avenue for firms to meet the graduates directly. This will afford the firms an opportunity to assess the graduates before employment,” he said.

According to him, about 2000 graduates from the state would be engaged in the scheme from among participants at the three-day exercise.

Papka said the scheme was part of government’s efforts, through the SURE-P, to create job opportunities for unemployed graduates in the country.

He therefore advised graduates at the fair to make good use of the opportunity and make an impression before the prospective employers.
