President Johnson-Sirleaf gave the instruction in Monrovia Tuesday, September 3, 2013 during her impromptu visit to the head office of the LEC. 

An Executive Mansion release quotes the Liberian Leader as saying: “I am concerned about the slow pace at which power transmission is being distributed.”

President Johnson-Sirleaf told the LEC Management: “Give first-hand information about what is obtaining on the slow pace of reaching power supplies to the various communities.”

She gave the instruction in response to the recent LEC Management’s statement that bureaucracy established by the donor community is seriously hampering the Monrovia power transmission exercise.

President Johnson-Sirleaf called on the LEC Management to use the materials they currently have to speed up the electrification of the various communities.

The President also called on the LEC Management to move away from the low-income to the bigger generation areas.

She encouraged employees to work along with the entity to speed up the process.
