Representative Samuel R. Enders is calling on the House of Representatives to invite the management at the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) along with its technical staff to give a complete outlook of operations in providing the needed power that is highly anticipated in moving the country’s economy.
Rep. Enders accuses LEC of allegedly offering services to its customers as though such services are being given free of charge. He complains about LEC’s services being very poor and not meeting consumers’ taste and expectation.
According to Rep. Enders, LEC continues to plant substandard polls in various communities and current supply is allegedly irregular. He observes that customer’s registration and access to power is a matter of extreme struggle, leaving many Liberians to give up in frustration.
Rep. Enders says he has visited many hospitals, schools, and other areas in his district and there is no electricity, even though many people there are willing to pay electricity bills.
He complains that he has talked to the management of LEC, but he still gets no answer, adding that the corporation has proven to be incapable of monitoring those who claim to be workers, leading to massive stealing of already installed equipment such as meters and wires that should make electricity available.
