Rivers: Foundation trains youth on entrepreneurship 

A non-governmental organisation, Jacob ldungafa Charity Organisation, has organised a business summit for the youth. 

The event which took place in Port Harcourt, weekend, attracted  the presence of over 1,000 young people drawn from churches, and organisations in Port Harcout and outside the state. 

Hosted by oil services magnate and business mugul, Jacob ldungafa, top government officials, religious leaders and business heads amongst others addressed the youth on various topics that cover entrepreneurial skills and spiritual enablement to help them navigate the turf. 

Addressing participants, Mr. Jacob ldungafa harped on the need for the youth to have purpose and vision in their life. This he believes, will help them form goals that will drive their quest to achieve their dreams. 

Idungafa who is the Group Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer of Fairtex Group, recalled how he started  Fairtex Group and  said he fought to nurture his dreams. 

“Whatever you see today is God’s revelation and the journey has not been easy,” he said. 

He added the need for young people to learn how to be responsible in life as life without responsibilities weakens one’s drive to achieve success. 

On his part, the presiding Bishop of Just Jesus Assembly, Norman Jonah, stated that the power to pursue one’s dreams comes from within. 

He urged young people to be selective of what they see and hear as that can have lasting impact on their mind to drive their passion. 

“All learning goes through the eyes and the ears and stays in life to grow. It is like putting one on an auto pilot,” Jonah noted. 

He opined that despite the economy, the youth can reinvent themselves and break free from negative beliefs so as to harness the power of growth,” he said.
