The Federal Government with support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP has launched the Nigeria Jubilee Fellows Programme (NJFP) 2021.
This program lays emphasis on Nigerian youths in the public and private sector organizations who are “highly skilled”
The program is expected to serve Nigerians – from North to South and East to West – ensuring that organizations and youth from all corners of the country can take part.
Special Adviser to the President on media and publicity- Femi Adesina in a statement titled
“How we recorded biggest economic growth in six years – President Buhari”.
The statement reads:
“On Tuesday, 22nd June 2021, I set up the National Poverty Reduction with Growth Strategy steering committee to coordinate our work to fulfil my promise to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in ten years. This is building on the posit
ive results from the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan and the targeted response to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic with the Economic Sustainability Plan.
“These efforts have yielded results with Nigeria recording its biggest economic growth in six years with a GDP growth of 5 per cent in the second quarter of 2021. The sectors that drove this growth are trade, telecommunications, transportation, electricity, agriculture and manufacturing. Each of these sectors showed significant improvement and thus created more jobs for our populace.”
“An important part of our policies and strategies is the focus on employment and creating opportunities for our people. When this government was elected in 2015, we committed to increasing job opportunities for Nigerians and as part of our social investments programme we recruited 500,000 graduates into our N-power programme.”

On the other side of the program that has to do with Mentorship, the Minister said:
“Beyond the skills and work experience, we will be building a new culture of mentorship and guidance that can chart a new course for skills development and work experience in our country.
“We believe that as this programme creates new opportunities for 20,000 recent graduates annually, the beneficiaries will use the opportunities presented to them and maximize their 12 months of engagement,’’ he said.
