Chukwu, who was represented by the Ministry’s Assistant Director and GIS Deputy Head, Operations, Mr. Simon Tyungu, disclosed that Nigerian youths

Training monitors from the Federal Ministry of Finance, Mrs. Nkechi Obi and Mr. Idowu Steven, emphasized the need for compliance to the clearly spelt out standards by training consultants, firms and interns.

They advised the interns to utilise the training programme as a post-graduation knowledge acquisition centre to acquaint themselves with
worthwhile work-place experiences.

Other resources persons include Mr. Steve Yomi Adetula, Mr. Henry Oloja, Mr. Adekunle Victor and Miss Mfon Otung, who anchored topics like cracking the code, studying and adapting to organisation, financial literacy and numeracy skills, ethics and leadership qualities among others.

Adetula, who is the General Manager of JK Consulting Company Limited, which coordinated the programme, expressed satisfaction with the interns’ comportment.

Two of the interns, Miss Victoria Madu and Mr. Omini Eteng, noted that the GIS programme has offered them rare opportunity to acquire basic skills and ethics of work place, and profitable insight into life.
