Abuja (WorldStage Newsonline)-- The Federal Government of Nigeria and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), that will see 37 Nigerians engaged in Junior Professional Officers Programme (JPOP) spread across the UN system.
The programme is expected to kick off next month. Nigeria will be the first African country and the 20th contributor to the Junior Professional Officers Programme.
Nigeria is the fifth contributor to the United Nations peacekeeping mission with about 6000 Nigerians currently on peacekeeping.
The successful candidates, whose salaries will be borne by the government of Nigeria, will be exposed to development assistance training opportunities that will cover different areas of human endeavours.
The Secretary to the Government of Federation, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, who signed on behalf of the government, said the JPOP is another significant milestone in actualizing President Goodluck Jonathan's major aspect of the transformation agenda.
