The Office of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) has encouraged youths in the Niger Delta area to overcome an ‘entitlement mentality’ and instead, cultivate their creativity. Major General Barry Ndiomu (rtd), the Interim Administrator of PAP, delivered this message during the 3rd Niger Delta MSME Summit in Akwa Ibom State.

He said, “If you rise above entitlement mentality, the sky will be too small to be your starting point. Everybody stands a chance. The youths must begin to think out of the box and come up with innovative ideas”.

Ndiomu said the war between Russia and Ukraine has exposed the harsh realities surrounding grains globally. “There is scarcity of grains, starch globally now, and we have cassava plantations all over the region” he stated.

Musa Wilfred, the Head of Reintegration at PAP, conveyed the message on behalf of Ndiomu. He urged the youths to increase their awareness and seize the opportunities presented by the current circumstances.

He reiterated that the “mandate” of PAP remains “to manage the destiny of thousands of youths and we have decided to begin to reason outside the box”.

He added that, “We must understand the times and take advantage properly. We must map out opportunities. We must be in a place where we are able to adequately predict the future. We must innovate, we must remind our delegates that there is virtue in adversity, resilience. Good things don’t come cheap.

“There is a notion about the region out there, and we must all agree jointly to alter that narrative.

“As young business owners, you must understand that beyond innovation, collaboration, networking, access to funds, loans and grants, lobbying, you have a role to play. You must embrace discipline, mentoring. You must understand that good things don’t come easy. You must understand that for every height you want to attain, there is a price to pay. Young leaders must be ready and willing to pay the price,” Ndiomu said.
