ABUJA – The National Directorate for Employment (NDE) in FCT on Wednesday advised unemployed graduates in Abuja to key into its Graduate Attachment Programme (GAP).
Mr Abdulrahman Mohammed, the Head, Information and Public Relations of the organisation, gave the advise in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
He said the programme, organized for unemployed graduates, was run under the Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS) of the Subsidy Reinvestment and Employment Programme (SURE-P).
Mohammed said unemployed graduates in the country should use the opportunity to register with their NDE in their respective states to enable them acquire skills.

“We have the special public works programme; it is a department that catered for graduate employment.
“We send 50 people to government organisations, especially those who registered according to their professional inclination; we source for places for them to be attached.
“Government pays them N20, 000 monthly for the period of six months attachment.
“This programme enables them exhibit their skills at places they are posted.”
Mohammed, who described the programme as a huge success, said most of the participants had gotten jobs after the attachment.(NAN)
