LIPA Legal Counsel Joins G. Kru Senatorial Race

first_imgA Legal Counsel staff in the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA), Atty. Patrice PokarWeah, has described himself as a “very possible candidate” to replace retired Grand Kru County Senator Cletus S. Wortoson in the upcoming Special Senatorial Elections in October-2014.The Movement for Progressive Change (MPC) candidate told journalists on Tuesday that he is positive of his election owing to his prominence amongst the youth for his inelastic advocacy role over the years.Atty. Weah in a cheered tone said he believes that he would also be voted based on his capacity as an Attorney-at-Law to replace the aged politician and geologist (Cletus Wotorson) to merge with the Doctor (Senator Dr. Peter Coleman) to promote and develop the County.Senator Wotorson, 77 years old, has announced his retirement from politics after serving over 40 years in public offices ranging from Director of Liberian Geological Survey, Minister of Lands, Mines and Energy, Chairman of the Liberian Petroleum Refinery Company, Senator of Grand Kru County and President Pro Tempt of the Liberian Senate.The LIPA legal man also told journalists that reason necessitating his ambition for the senatorial race is to fill the leadership vacuum in order to promote Grand Kru County Development Agenda.“I am sure of my election and will certainly reinvent the wheel of the Grand Kru County Development Agenda for our County to be on par with other counties like Sinoe, Grand Bassa and Nimba,” he said. “Howbeit, education would be my priority.”Meanwhile, Atty. Weah has urged people of the county to deviate from tribal politics in county.“We have 12 traditional groups and let’s see ourselves as one people and stop the kru and grebo sentiment, because if we thread that path we will put county in trouble,” Atty. Weah said. “Let’s go to the ballot box without tribal politics but using our capability and the developmental issues,” he concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Srimex Appoints First Female CEO, Wadei Powell

first_imgWadei Powell becomes the first woman to head a company in Liberias oil and gas sectorBy David A. Yates and Robin DopoeWadei Powell, former vice president for administration and human resource at Cellcom GSM (now Orange GSM), has become the first female to be appointed chief executive officer of an oil and gas company in Liberia. Powell, who has over 19 years of professional experience, including her time as General Service Manager at Firestone Liberia, now takes over from Musa Bility as CEO of Srimex Enterprise, one of the leading importers of petroleum products in the country.Bility, the founder and owner of Srimex, will move on to serve as the company’s chairman and special advisor to the management. He said the decision to step down from the position was tough, but necessary for the growth of Srimex.“My decision has been two years in the making and after reviewing lots of potential clients; Ms. Powell emerged as the best with the experience, credibility, trust, and ability to expand the company’s growth.“I have no doubt that she will do better because she is here to change things and the best person to expand the business and improve the relationship with clients, both locally and overseas,” Bility said. “I don’t think I have more to offer the company as we speak right now, so the best thing to do is turn the mantle of authority to someone new.”The changing of the guard at Srimex Enterprise comes at the time when the company and its founder have been pursued by the Government of Liberia over claims of failure to pay overdue tax in the tune of US$190,800, dating as far back as May 2010. In October 2017, the Tax Court threatened the company with closure for failure to pay the tax debt.That may very well be the reason for Powell’s preferment to the post. With nearly two decades of experience under her belt in organizational development, human resources administration, training and development, and program/project management, she steps into the CEO seat with the arduous task of turning the company around to achieve not only tax compliance but optimum efficiency. Powell possesses a Master’s degree in Information Systems Management with an emphasis in Organizational Development and a Bachelor’s degree in English with an emphasis in Business and Technical Writing.Bility disagreed with the public perception that he was stepping down because of conflict of interest to save his company’s image since he is an executive of the opposition Liberty Party whose complaints about irregularities and fraud have led to the current delay in the election process.“I don’t have an identity crisis. I didn’t step down from the position because of my affiliation with LP. I remain an LP partisan and support my party’s decision at court. I have spent years in this business and my ideas are getting old. Starting Srimex and building a great team has been one of the most incredible and rewarding experiences of my life. Together we set out a business that is now at the forefront in the oil and gas sector in the country,” he said.Insiders at Srimex praise Powell for the “great vision”, she has laid out for the company. “As a former Vice President for Administration and Human Resource at Cellcom, she helped to redefine the company’s administrative strategies and spearheaded significant improvements to its organizational structure,” they said.“As General Service Manager at Firestone Liberia, Powell enhanced the company’s relationship with the government of Liberia. She is the founder and president of the UFOUND Solutions Group, a consulting firm providing organization development services to private and public entities,” they added.In a brief remark, Powell said she has come to help Srimex move forward by capturing the immense potential ahead by transforming its organizational and business model.“Sound organization systems and process are the building blocks of any successful organization; therefore, I’m going to align these systems with the business objectives and goals to ensure the growth and sustainability of Srimex.“I’m extremely pleased that Srimex chairman Musa Bility has given me this opportunity to serve. I recognize this as an opportunity to expand the company’s market share and deliver on its promise of exceptional services to its customers and better compete in the oil and gas industry,” she said.The new Srimex CEO added that she is excited to be a part of the company’s growth and is looking forward to further redefining the way Srimex does business.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgTwo young men who gagged and bound a girl before robbing her have escaped a lengthy jail sentence after being given a taste of prison.Lee McLaughlin was given a taste of prison. PIc by Northwest Newspix.Lee McLaughlin, and James Leedham, were part of a three man gang who terrorised two young women in a house robbery in Carndonagh. The men had pleaded guilty at Letterkenny Circuit Court to false imprisonment and aggravated burglary when they appeared on Monday last.An angry Judge John O’Hagan deferred sentence until yesterday but had sent both men to Castlerea Prison to reflect on what they had done.The court heard gang forced their way into the house at The Mullins in Carndonagh in broad daylight on September 29th, 2013.The men had their faces hidden and had also brought an imitation firearm to the house.Two young women in the house were watching television at around 1.45pm in the afternoon when the gang struck.One of the women Shannon Doherty managed to escape through a window but another woman, Danielle Doherty, who was 20, was held captive by the raiders.McLaughlin, 20, of Allendale Park, Carndonagh, tied Ms Doherty’s hands with a cable-tie and put duct tape on her mouth to stop her from screaming.James Leedham got suspended jail sentence. Pic by Northwest Newspix.The gang tried to put her into a wardrobe but she refused to go into it.They eventually stole 36 packets of cigarettes, 6 packets of loose tobacco and €58 in cash which they put into a rucksack which they had brought with them.However the men were chased by some neighbours who had ben alerted to the robbery by Ms Doherty who had escaped earlier.They managed to flee through fields but were eventually apprehended by Gardai.The court heard the gang had planned the robbery after watching a video the previous night.Victim Danielle Doherty said she was still suffering from the attack and had to lock all the doors in her house if she was home alone.Leedham, 18, of Station Road, Buncrana, revealed he had been turned down for an application joining the army and was upset.McLaughlin had suffered a vert tough childhood and his father abused him and his siblings including occasions when he would stub cigarettes out on them.Judge O’Hagan said if he had sentenced the men last Monday, they would have been looking at a lengthy jail term.“The deviousness which they did it with was quite frightening – the taping of the mouth, using cable ties, attempting to put her in the wardrobe – it’s like something you would see in the movies.“I really do hope the four days they have had in Castlerea was a time of reflection and that they should not wish to be there again,” he said.He sentenced both men to three years imprisonment but suspended the sentences for three years and ordered them to be of good behaviour.MEN ESCAPE JAIL SENTENCE AFTER GETTING TASTE OF PRISON FOR ATTACK ON YOUNG WOMAN was last modified: February 7th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:aggravated burglaryFalse ImprisonmentJames NeedhamLee McLaughlinletterkennylast_img read more

Marco Silva refuses to confirm if he will stay at Hull following relegation

first_img Marco Silva Marco Silva has refused to reveal whether he will remain Hull City manager following the club’s relegation from the Premier League.Silva sparked an impressive turnaround in form at the KCOM Stadium after replacing Mike Phelan in January but fell short of masterminding a great escape.The Portuguese has earned widespread praise for the job he has done and Hull fans are eager for him to stay on.But Silva was non-committal when asked about his future plans after Sunday’s 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, which confirmed the Tigers’ relegation.“It is not the moment to talk about the situation,” said the 39-year-old, who is reportedly being eyed by Watford.“I respect too much the club and these fans, who have been amazing since I came here. It’s the moment to speak to the chairman and the board. The club needs to understand what they need to do differently in the future, and we’ll do that next.“Now is not the moment to talk about the future of the manager. It’s about the future of the club.“I will talk to the board and the chairman first, talking inside the walls of the club. Not for you.” 1last_img read more
