Governor Jeremiah Lomorukai has welcomed the 200 interns recently recruited into the public service, to commence the six-month Program.
During the brief meeting, Governor Lomorukai said that the program is a deliberate move by his Administration to equip the young graduates with skills for entry into the job market.
The Governor lauded the Public Service Board for overseeing the competitive recruitment of the interns.
He further added that plans were underway to progressively increase the number of internship opportunities, moving forward.
This comes after the interns had just completed a two-day induction last Friday, conducted by the Service Board.
The County Boss advised the interns to observe discipline in service delivery and high integrity when joining public service.
The Governor was accompanied by Ambassador Richard Ekai (Economic Advisor), Prof Malachy Ekal (Political Advisor), and Ekiru Tulele (Legal Advisor).
The County Public Service Board Ag. Chair Dr. Pauline Ekod received Governor Lomorukai alongside other members; Maj (rtd)Dr. Daniel Ingollan, Von Willy Etir, Erastus Ngala and Edward Losinyono.
