President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has paid an unannounced visit to the Liberia Electricity Corporation, and urged the management to electrify communities in Monrovia.
The President noted that the process of connecting various communities to the electricity grid is so slow, and urged the LEC management to use necessary materials on hand to speed up the process.
Speaking Tuesday during the impromptu visit to the corporation, she expressed serious concern about the slow pace at which power transmission is being distributed in various communities here.
President Sirleaf said the bureaucracy established by donor community is seriously hampering the electrification of Monrovia, saying it is ridiculous for the LEC to have all the materials and cannot generate power.
She urged the Management to move away from low-income connections to bigger generation areas, stressing that no resources should serve as obstacle to electrifying Monrovia and other parts of the country.
