Mr. Christopher Z. Neyor, former chief executive of the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL), has declared his candidacy to contest the pending October midterm senatorial election for Montserrado County.
According to Mr. Neyor, his decision to enter the race is based on his conviction that he possesses all the qualifications to lead the electorate of Montserrado County.
Mr. Neyor said he has a plan to make a difference on the political landscape of the country, where his leadership would be opened to all.
“If am elected come the October mid-term senatorial race, of which I am sure to emerge victorious, I will lead by the wishes of the electorate,” he assured.
Currently serving as chief executive officer and president of the privately-owned Morweh Energy Group and former managing director of Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC), Mr. Neyor says his campaign would invite people of all works of life, “because it is the people’s votes that will take me to the National Legislature as senator.”
The Morweh Energy chief executive pledged his commitment to mobilize resources with the inclusion of foreign-based partners to contribute to youth empowerment.
"We need to do something to put the young people of this country to work, as there is no time for heaping praise on people who have nothing substantial to offer the citizenry; it is meaningless," Neyor stressed.
He observed that his commitment to the young people remains uncompromising, noting that the hallmark of good leadership is personal honesty and a sense of responsibility, which in his belief, forms an everyday part of his life.
Mr. Neyor’s political ambitions were made public over the weekend in Gborga Town, Lower Morweh District in Rivercess County, during a ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of a multi-million dollar school complex.
The ground breaking was a welcome sight for residents, whose school going kids might soon have access to a modern school in their locality.
Mr. Neyor, a son of Rivercess, then made a personal contribution of US$1,000 to the project.
Apart from that contribution, Mr. Neyor, like Rivercess Superintendent, Wellington Geevon-Smith, pledged to make further contributions.
