An admin user cannot prioritize the backlog

One of our admin users (who is also the product manager) is unable to prioritize the backlog. He receives an error message that he doesn't have the ability to do this with his role. He has to be able to prioritize the backlog as the product owner. Please advise how to fix this problem.

Thanks.

If you are a JIRA admin, you can set this up - here's more details of how to do it:
