The Ministry of Wealth Creation and Employment was established in fulfillment of the promise of His Excellency, the Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, to limit the unemployment crisis in the State. The Ministry, in pursuit of its mandate to create employment opportunities, has developed various initiatives. One of such initiatives is the "Graduate Internship Program". This program is a 3 month paid Internship Scheme for graduates who have been unemployed for a minimum of 1 year after the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). The Graduate Internship Program is designed to give candidates an opportunity to develop employability skills which are often vital in securing employment.
