President Weah cuts ribbon to the dedicated LPRC facilities

President George Weah has dedicated a new modern state of the art Corporate Headquarters of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC) in compliance with executing the Coalition for Democratic Change’s (CDC) mission.

President Weah in a remark on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 during the dedication ceremony said his administration finds it necessary to implement infrastructural projects such as this because Liberia as the oldest independent country in Africa, has sadly lacked such much-needed facilities.

“Under the Pro-Poor Agenda, it is our intention that every Government Ministry, Agency, or Public Corporation must have its own office building rather than paying exorbitant fees to lease an area.  These rental fees could otherwise be saved to be utilized for building schools or clinics or other projects which could better serve our people.  Over the long term, these rental payments could equal or exceed the cost of constructing our own government buildings,” President Weah said.

According to President Weah, the CDC has its vision and will fulfill the mission, stating “Our vision is fully set out and captured in the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development, and our mission is to fulfill that vision by developing our country.”

He said the government will complete the mission of the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development by continuing to give priority to infrastructural development.

President Weah lauded the Management and staff of LPRC for taking this important initiative to construct the administrative building and modernize some other facilities that are used in its operation.

He expressed gratitude to the Managing Director, Ms. Marie Urey Coleman, who completed the project, and her immediate predecessor, Ms. Nyemade Pearson, who started the project.

“It is worthy to note that these two female administrators were appointed by this Administration, and they have justified their preferment by bringing a high level of professionalism, energy, and innovation to the management of the LPRC,” the Liberian leader indicated.

He admonished the Management and Staff to take good care of the building through proper maintenance, so that it will continue to serve them well into the future. 

LPRC New Building

“I have noted with interest the Status Report on the rehabilitation of the tanks and other facilities at the PST.  Although this is still a work-in-progress, I want to encourage you to complete the job, and I look forward to being invited back soon to dedicate the completed facility,” President Weah said.

He said although the building speaks for itself, there are still those who say that they cannot see it, stating “well, it is often said that none are as blind as those who do not wish to see.  Even lights in the city, people say they cannot see the light. So will they see a building?”

President recounted the recent dedication of the first Administrative Building of the National Port Authority, which according to him has not been there since the Freeport was built almost 75 years ago.

Managing Director, Ms. Marie Urey Coleman, said she is grateful to the Almighty God for the completion of the headquarters of the LPRC.

Ms. Coleman said amidst the COVID-19, the management team was still able to complete the headquarters. According to her, since the inception of the LPRC in 1978 it has been one of the most critical institutions of economic importance for the government and public sustainability for growth.

“Members of the Board and the executive management team expressed their gratitude and appreciation to Weah for the reposed in the entire team,” Ms. Coleman said.

She said the management remains committed in supporting the government Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development. Ms. Coleman lauded her predecessor, Ms. Nyemade Pearson for the good work before her departure for the Central Bank of Liberia.

  1. You see how silly you are! Ellen stayed in power for twelve unbroken years, and did not have any plans for providing such social capitals, and you are here behaving as when you are in futility furtively but foolishly trying to conceal the fact that the immature johnny just come in politics you have accepted as your demi god Alexander Benedict Cummings IS A GAY RAPIST AND A FILTHY BUTT BOY.

  2. Defender,
    Irrespective of what, Weah deserves credit for completing the project. The project started in the late 1970s, see the 13th paragraph above. Weah said during the ceremony that the government paid a lot of unnecessary money to renters because the government didn’t have it’s own building. Was he lying, mon frere?
    Was Johnson-Sirleaf president of Liberia during the 1970s?

    • The project did not start in the 70s. Read Weah’s comment again.
      If I should quote him indirectly, he said the port has been in existence for almost 75 years, without an administrative building of its own. It means the port has been renting other premises for office space.

      Ask your CDC people if it is Weah who started that project. They must be frank of you, I am sure.
      Grand Frere, tell Weah to start his first infrastructure project for Liberia, at least the Buchanan-Harper coastal high way he promised to be done in 2 years. Everything underway and being inaugurated was started by Ellen.

  3. Defender,
    The LPRC project is what I am talking about.
    Slice it anyway you choose, Weah deserves credit!

    The economy of the US was good before Trump took over from Obama. But Trump gets credit because he presided over a good economy.

    Alexander Benedict Cummings didn’t make Coco-Cola. Coco-Cola made Alexander Benedict Cummings to be who he is. Will you say everything Alexander Benedict did while he worked for Coco-Cola was not pre-planned by Coco-Cola? So what did Alexander Benedict Cummings do on his own when he worked for Coco-Cola?

  4. If Alexander B. Cummings had not added any values to Coca cola, he couldn’t have risen to the vice-presidential position, to the point of even being a member of the boards of 3 multinationals.
    It takes high intellectualism to excel to such positions of responsibility in a multinational, Grand Frere.
    Comparing Weah to Cummings is like including snail among animals with blood, NON Grand Frere.

  5. Alexander B. Cummings is nobody to be compared with any decent politician. If he got on the Board of any board it was the selling of his butts to other men as he did as a means to holding any position at Coca Cola.

    When he was assigned in Nigeria, his buttboy homosexual lifestyle made Nigerians and others to stereotype Liberians as people of that filthy life style of selling his butts.

    So, you little boy Petarus Dolo, do not deceive yourself about intellectualism on the part of Cummings. Everybody who knows Alex Cummings knows that he is a smelly fag and buttboy.

  6. TO GOD BEING GLORIFY AMEN AND I WAS IN CLARATOWN AND FROM LIBERIANS LEADERS AND THE OLD REGIMES LEADERS ADMINISTRATION, WITH THE GOVERNMENT MONEYS AND NO GOOD BUILDING LIKE LPRC TERMINAL TOO. IT TAKE A VILLAGE AND YES WE CAN IF WE ALL WORKS TOGETHER AS THE PRESIDENT GEORGE M.WEAH ADMINISTRATIONS.
    GOOD DAY IN LIBERIA AND MORE DEVELOPMENTS IN LIBERIA. JUST WAIT UPON THE LORD OF GOD UPON THE NATION OF LIBERIA. THANK TO GOD.

  7. I’m still looking for the “State of the Art” building in the picture.

    VAMOMA HOUSE is better-looking than this thing, my people!!!

    Please do not use “State-of-the-Art” if you do not know the meaning of the phrase.
