Robert Sirleaf Holds Consultative Oil Talks With Liberians in the Diaspora (USA)

Robert Sirleaf, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Liberia’s state owned oil corporation, the National Oil Corporation of Liberia (NOCAL) and son of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf is  leading a delegation to the United States to hold consultative talks with Liberian citizens living in the United States.

According to the coordinating team, the NOCAL  consultative forum will take-off in Washington DC on Friday, August 17, 2012. The delegation will then split thereafter into teams to leave for  Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Atlanta, Georgia respectively.

Mr. Sirleaf  will be entering the lion’s den when he meets Liberians in the Diaspora, especially the Philadelphia Liberian community that is believed to be the toughest of all Liberian communities in the United States because  of its  fearlessness, passion and boldness about issues concerning their country.  Mr. Sirleaf’s  appointment by his smother, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to the  Chairmanship of the Board of Directors of the state owned oil company has become a lighting rod of infuriation.  Liberians are accusing the Liberian leader of nepotism and Mr. Sirleaf will pretty well be confronted with this label which the international community has also adopted and  called on  the President she  rescinds his appointment but remains adamant.

Coordinators of the NOCAL’s Consultative Forum say the purpose of the forum is to acquaint Liberians in the Diaspora about the country’s newly discovered oil sector that is becoming a curse  and controversial for the country because of the manner in which oil blocks have been auctioned costing the country tremendous loss.

Liberians are however being called upon  to attend the consultative  forum to learn about what is happening with their newly discovered oil and come with their  concerns and questions.

The Forum goes to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania  on August 18, 2012 and will be held at the Christ Assembly Lutheran Church on 229 N 63rd Street at 5:00 pm where the NOCAL Chairman will be in attendance,  the Consulative Forum coordinating team says.
