Ayo Bankole took to Twitter to narrate his ordeal in getting a male intern for a project of his. He wrote;

So I just recruited four interns for a project I’m working on. It was a big struggle to find a single male.

All my friends that conduct regular trainings & internship placements also complained about the dwindling level of seriousness amongst male fresh grads.

It is troubling.

For those saying maybe money was a factor,given the poor pay interns get.

I’m paying them 50k for 4-6weeks, with free lunch & tea/biscuits for breakfast.

I’m also given them a two day training on process improvement. So no,it’s not about the unattractiveness of the internship.
