Government of Enugu Encourages Indigenous Fresh Graduates to Apply for the FG and UNDP Empowerment Programme

As a result of the recent interactive meeting between the United Nations (UN) Resident Coordinator in Nigeria, Mr Edward Kallon, and his delegation with Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State and members of the State Executive Council (EXCO), the Enugu Office of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has announced that the Federal Government, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program, will implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Enugu State (NJFP). 

According to a statement released by the Enugu SDGs Office’s Focal Person, Hon. Mrs Mabel Agbo, who urged fresh graduates from Enugu State to apply for the programme via before the October 20, 2021 deadline, the NJFP is a work placement programme that places young Nigerians in private and public sector organisations across the country across multiple industries. 

Mrs Agbo explained that participating organisations are connected directly to graduates and that once matched, the benefiting company is able to welcome outstanding and skilled young people to their team for a year, with the programme covering their salaries. 

This fellowship, according to the Enugu SDGs Focal Person, is aimed to assist recent NYSC graduates with no work experience, who typically struggle to get into the professional sector.
