He said the implementation of the agreement will see Nigerian youths gain employment with the global body under what is known as Junior Professional Officers Programme (JPO-P).

JPO-P came into existence in 1963, with several countries participating in the programme.

There are currently about 150 junior professional officers in various countries across the world.

The number of youths employed is dependent on individual government, who are expected to fund it.
