New LPRC Boss Promises Sweeping Reforms

MONROVIA: The new managing Director of the Liberia Petroleum Refinery Company Amos Tweh says he will implement a long-shelved policy measure to curb theft, internal inefficiencies and expand the definition of team in finding solutions to the existing problems at the entity. He made the announcement on Tuesday during his taking over ceremony.

The proposed measures would lay out twenty major areas of focus including review of existing claim Policy and the company’s overall price regime to conform to current day realities, working with private firms to commission a full-scale personal, system and financial audits and accelerate growth to increase revenue.
Some of these steps would echo the managing director’s vision for the betterment of the company.
“As I officially start work in this reunion as MD at LPRC, I want to restate President Boakai’s policy statement, “there will be no more business as usual,” the LPRC MD, Amos Tweh said at his taking over ceremony announcing his readiness to work.
Internally, every employee is urged to adopt “the principle of corporate mentality,” he continued.
The measure, he said, “establishes a clear agenda that will enhance teamwork, address internal inefficiencies and provide the space for personal development through capacity building initiatives.”
The Liberia Petroleum Refining Company has long been a major flashpoint for Tweh, a former manager for compliance and policy that helped supported his education for Master degree in 2017.
Since then, successive leaders put off attempts to revive his former portfolio.
But, in 2024 the new administration, headed by President Joseph Nyuma Boakai, appointed Amos Tweh as Managing Director of the premier corporate entity in the country, LPRC, making him the youngest to head such post.
In the past years, authorities at the LPRC have used other means to remove major political oppositions who were critical of the then regime.
The new MD says the new measure will complement efforts to strengthen operational and systems efficiency to adequately support preventive maintenance and ensure that vessel discharge and loading infrastructures are in their best state at all times.
“We will work with the relevant departments (HR, compliance et al) to ensure performance, punctuality, good work ethics and high productivity. We will place premier on protecting company assets and utilize available resources more appropriately to facilitate the expansion of the company’s operations,” said Tweh.
“We will strengthen operational and systems efficiency to adequately support preventive maintenance and ensure that vessel discharge and loading infrastructures are in their best state at all times.”
Some observers who graced the ceremony noted that many of the measures would create a future in which criticism of policies such as this one would be risky.
The new “LPRC Petroleum Lab” for example, Tweh said, under his administration will be upgraded in keeping with international standards to ensure that quality is not compromised at any given time
“Importers contributions to the socioeconomic development of Liberia have been very significant. We will work with various licensed importers and distributors to jealously guide and protect their investments in order to uphold the company’s enviable reputational credentials and ensure the uninterrupted availability and affordability of petroleum products on the Liberian market.”
