The Inquirer is a leading independent daily newspaper published in Liberia, based in Monrovia. It is privately owned with a "good reputation".

Customers Embrace LEC

The Liberia Electricity Corporation’s customers in Monrovia and its environs have embraced the agency for the many services and impacts made on their businesses in the provision of affordable and reliable electricity throughout Monrovia and its surroundings, as well as other parts of the country.
The customers told the media that the usage of the public power continues to make their businesses stable because, with public electricity, instead of generators, their businesses are gradually improving economically.
Modern Photo Studio Manager at Red-light in Paynesville, Sampson B. Cooper, said because of the availability of public power, he is no longer buying gasoline for the use of his generator, but relies solely on power from LEC to do his business.
He said LEC has become his best partner when it comes to business in the Red-light community; therefore, he is willing to buy the agency’s token at any moment to recharge his meter.
Also, another businessman, the owner of Famous Bakery in Redlight, Amos T. Tengbeh, noted that LEC current has boosted businesses in the commercial city of Redlight and has reduced the unnecessary cost of buying backup machines and fuel for the supply of power to their businesses.
He noted that due to the reliability of the public power, the bakery has improved in its production, and hopes that it will continue as they cater to the needs of many persons in their community.
“Being that I am enjoying stable electricity provided by LEC, my bakery business is improving. Furthermore, we are helping the agency to protect the transformer in the community against power theft,” he noted.
Tengbeh pointed out that in the commercial areas like Redlight, there are lots of Liberian entrepreneurs or businesses that rely on public power, instead of their private generators, stating that doing business is about profit-making and not losses.
“Young people in Redlight are now going to the banks for loans to do their work. This is because they now depend on the LEC for the supply of regular electricity to run their various businesses,” he said.
For Raul Kollie, a mineral water producer on the Bushrod Island, the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) is doing well by providing reliable and affordable power supply to Monrovians, mainly for their businesses.
“My current has been very stable. Therefore, I am using this opportunity to commend LEC’s management for the continued supply of electricity to the business sector of the country,” he noted.
Kollie said that the essence of the assessment at various market points where there are customers to buy their tokens for their meters, is to ensure that customers receive the best of services.
“LEC points of sale are opening on time to serve customers their electricity tokens. LEC’s goal is to make sure that vendors are giving customers the best services they need,” he noted.
Also speaking to the media, Ruth Nyanti explained that she is benefiting from the agency in the Township of West Point, where she is doing fish business, stating how she produces ice for her customers.
A mother of three, Oretha Collins, says she and her children survive daily from the sale of cold water from electricity supply that has been stable since they got connected.
She is buying a sack of water for L$70 and selling up to 12 sacks per day because the electricity is stable for doing business.
Another businessman, Newton Flomo on Randall Street, is appealing that the points of sales for the LEC token be improved to meet present day customer service.
