President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to make a key announcement on the Nigeria Jubilee Fellows Programme on Tuesday.
The programme aims to place 20,000 skilled young Nigerian graduates (under the age of 30) into jobs in private and public sector organizations around the country.
The jobs will last for 12 months, will be fully-paid, and will seek to help prepare qualifying recent graduates for their future careers and work environments.
This is according to presidential spokesperson, Tolu Ogunlesi.
According to Mr Ogunlesi, the goals of the program include “improving employability, building useful career and leadership skills in young graduates, and connecting employers and potential employees.”
The programme is supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
On Tuesday, President Buhari is expected to announce when applications for both fellows and host organizations will officially open.
