Lagos State Govt. institutes Graduate Employment Scheme

Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Thursday said that a programme to enable fresh graduates become job creators, rather than job seekers, had been instituted in the state.

Ambode made the disclosure at the award of Post Graduate Diplomas, Masters and Ph.D. to 2,525 students of the Lagos State University (LASU).

He said that the capacity building initiative, tagged “Ready, Set, Work” was targeted at final year students in the state’s tertiary institutions.
“This programme will enable successful students get internship placements in high ranking corporate organisations.

“At the end of the programme, those with best business ideas will get linked to major investors and the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund.

“I therefore enjoin all our final year students to avail themselves of this opportunity,” he said.
Ambode, who sued for continued peace in the institution, said government’s vision for the school was to groom the next generation of leaders who would be job creators and employers of Labour.

He promised that LASU would be made a preferred destination for research and human capacity Development in Nigeria.
