The office of the Chief Executive Officer of International Consultancy Capital or ICC, has clarified a 9th October 2014 media reports, which alleged that ‘House Speaker Alex Tyler, and Representative Moses Kollie are shareholders of the entity. The ICC described the reports as false, misleading and without any substantive basis of truth.
In a press release issued in Monrovia over the weekend, the entity disclaimed said ‘Documents’ being referenced in the publication, and believe such article may be the work of disingenuous elements whose objectives may be to besmear the good image of positive drivers of corporate Liberia.
It clarifies that the International Consultant Capital, being a credible private sector entity, and a premium contributor to the economic viability of the Liberia, remains an independent business establishment which ethical values disallow allocation of shares to elected public officials whose affiliation would engender ‘Conflict of interests’.
The release urged interested media houses to check with the Liberian Business Registry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Forestry Development Authority to authentic its registration and operational documents, if deemed necessary.
The release said whilst the ICC values cordial relations with all officials of government, it however, understands the negative legal implications of allocating shares to public officials, especially Members of the Legislature, and could have never encouraged such alignments.
“For the many years it has provided treasured commercial services to Liberia and Liberians, the ICC prides itself as a legitimate registered entity that operates within the limits of the laws of corporate Liberia, accentuating its interests and expansions purely on policies of merits and honesty,” the release said.
“ Even though we continue to be nationally challenged by the Ebola outbreak, yet the ICC remains active in supporting viable economic activities where it has just acquired over US$3 million dollars’ worth of additional equipment, including a sawmill”.
Meanwhile, the ICC reinforces its agenda to remaining a viable partner in the creation of useful opportunities for all Liberians, and appreciates the moral examples of its Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Mohammed Wento, who triumphed from the lowest level of life to an enviable business success story, with discipline, honesty and hard work.
