LEC Board Chair Wants Entity Privatize Due ‘Underdevelopment of Liberia’s Energy Sector’

Mr. Monie R. Captan

The Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Liberia Electricity (LEC), Mr. Monie Captan has publicly frowned on the underdevelopment of the country’s  energy sector, and further  recommended privatization of the Liberia Electricity Corporation

Speaking recently in Monrovia with Liberia Media for Democratic Initiative Director, John Kollie, Mr. Captan said it is important for the LEC to privatize the distribution component of its operations.

According to him, when that is done, the power crisis in the country will be resolved permanently.

The former foreign Affairs Minister noted that considering its current incapacity to handle electricity issues in the country, LEC should be able to share its responsibilities with other institutions that will complement its efforts in rendering better service to the Liberian people.
