FG Opens Portal for Nigerian Jubilee Fellows Programme – Apply

The Government of Nigeria, on Monday, September 6, opened the application portal for the Nigerian Jubilee Fellows Programme (NJFP) to employ 20,000 graduates yearly.

The application portal will remain open from September 6 to October 20, 2021.

Nyscinfo reported last week that President Muhammadu Buhari officially flagged off post-NYSC job (NJFP).

The programme is the federal government’s youth empowerment initiative in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), aimed at reducing the rising unemployment rate in the country, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic which has negatively impacted Nigerian youths in getting a job.

The programme is targeted to equip Nigerian graduates with practical knowledge and relevant skills for a 12-month period, and to connect them with local job opportunities in various sectors.

The sectors include;
