Liberia’s retiring president Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
ONTARIO, Canada—Liberia’s outgoing president, Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has written to Honorable Chris Neyor, former managing director of the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) and former chairman of the depleted National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL).
A few months ago, Honorable Neyor, a devout Christian, privately communicated with the Liberian leader expressing the need to reconcile, forgive and move on in peace and solidarity as a people. That private communication to the President Sirleaf was handed over to the Liberian local dailies for publication either by the president herself or her aides. That gesture took many people by surprise.
After some time, President Sirleaf decided to respond officially to Honorable Neyor by mail. In her letter, the Liberian leader said she has good memories of their relationship and friendship, acknowledging the positive virtues of the former NOCAL chief.
Honorable Neyor, a notable Liberian businessman, and an engineer is an international energy analyst. He is the current president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Morweh Energy Group, an energy consultancy firm.
He spent a decade with the Liberia Electricity Corporation and served as the last Managing Director before the 1989 breakout of the Liberian Civil Wars.
He is noted for his reformist agenda and the contributions he has made to the energy and educational sectors in Liberia.
Honorable Neyor is a former visiting scholar at the Center for Energy and the Environment of the University of Pennsylvania. His undergraduate study in Systems Engineering was done at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio and pursued graduate work in energy economics at the University of Denver and Management at Stanford University Graduate School of Business. He is a member of the IEEE and a registered Professional Engineer in Texas.
