PAP Begins Inaugural Train, Employ and Mentor Program.
The Presidential Amnesty Program (PAP) has begun its special Train, Employ, and Mentor (TEM) training program with 400 ex-agitators.
They despatched the pioneer delegates to the Bradama International Skills Work Limited in Agadagba-Obon, Ese-Odo Local Government Area of Ondo State by the Interim Administrator, PAP, Col. Milland Dixon Dikio (retd).
Dikio, who launched the initiative on Monday, said it was in keeping with a commitment he made to the ex-agitators in the new year.
In a statement signed by his Special Adviser for Media, Neotaobase Egbe, Dikio advised the recipients to see it as another privileged opportunity to build a prosperous future for themselves.
He explained that the TEM program was a well-thought-out training strategy that would offer beneficiaries, the essential skills and a long-term source of income.
Dikio urged the delegates to avoid any behaviour that may jeopardize their participation in the seven-month training program and reaffirmed his commitment to the region’s long-term peace and prosperity.
Bibopere Ajube (alias Shoot-at-Sight), the Managing Director of Bradama International Skills Work Limited, challenged the trainees to be motivated by his success story and try to be better than him.
Ajube said: “If you don’t work hard you can’t achieve anything. So, make up your mind today that you will make it. Look at me, I took a decision to succeed and look at where I am today. Always think of your children, what are you offering your children for their lives to be better”?
While praising Dikio for the TEM’s concept, the former warlord cautioned the delegates against developing cliques and cabals that would jeopardize their training’s effectiveness.
The seven-month course explores four-building faculties: Electrical/Solar Inverter Installation, Mechanical, and General Studies.
