The Chief Executive Officer of the Morweh Petroleum Consultancy Group, Chris Z. Neyor, has formally opened the Lakpazee Intellectual Center to serve as a platform for the exchange of ideas.
The youth of the community has expressed thanks and appreciation to Mr. Neyor and other donors for their generous contribution, which, according to the Chairman of the LIC, Marwolo Bangolo, will go a long way in promoting intellectualism in the community by enabling young people to debate topical issues as education, health and sanitation, including the ongoing fight against the deadly Ebola Virus.
According to a press release, the center is equipped with television, chairs, benches, scanning machines, laptops, and games. Cutting the ribbon to declare the center open along with his wife after the financial accountability statement was read by the LIC Secretary-General; Mr. Neyor said he was impressed with the organization’s display of accountability and transparency.
A former president of the National Oil Company of Liberia or NOCAL, and Ex-Managing Director of the Liberia Electricity Company or LEC, he focused his keynote address on the theme: “Be a Change”, cited from the great Indian Prime Minister Mahatma Gandhi. Neyor, a Montserrado County senatorial aspirant, said when political activities are resumed in the country after the Ebola pandemic, this slogan will be his campaign theme.
The independent senatorial aspirant observed that if Liberia is to become a corrupt free society, Liberians themselves should be the change to ensure accountability for resources that they control and have stewardship over, adding that when anything that you account for must be made in public and not in secret.
“What the LIC has done is to give a transparent account of their expenditure and income, which we hope will be replicated by the national Ebola Task Force”, Neyor added. Making remarks, Mr. George S. Dahn, Sr, thanked the leadership of the LIC for the dedication to service and for honoring the donors, adding that LIC officials, reading their expenditure, encouraged them to do more.
Other speakers included Mr. Fubbi F. A. Henries, the Chairman of the LIC, Bangolo, and LIC Vice Chairman Stevenson, as well as the President of the University of Liberia Student Union (ULSU) Anthony Williams. The program was climaxed by the awarding certificates to distinguished personalities who have immensely contributed to the growth and development of the LIC and the nation at large.
