Speaking during a one-day Graduate Internship Fair for Cross River State, Project Director of Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS), Mr Peter Papka, said that against the previous N25,000, new mentees would now be paid N30,000 each month.
He added also that each of the accredited firms for the mentorship programme will receive N25,000 for overhead cost outside other approved logistics.
Represented by the Acting Director of Monitoring and Evaluation in the Federal Ministry of Finance in charge of GIS, Aremu Najeem, Papka stated that they were actually expecting 1000 graduates to apply but that they had to attend to the few that promptly responded to the online registration.
He said that whilst government will do everything possible to ensure that the one-year internship in the different partnering firms is as conducive as possible for the lucky mentees, and cautioned that if mentoring firms give poor reports about them their pay would be made on pro-rata basis.
“Such reports about bad conduct, lack of commitment and perennial absenteeism could be met with dismissal from the programme. Interns must be humble in order to achieve success or be retained for permanent employment at such firms,” he stressed.
He added that government has also addressed the complaints from partnering firms that they would always need to interface with the potential interns before taking them on.
“This is the reason we have brought the firms and graduates face to face so that they can make decision on the spot,” he said.
