Monrovia - In recent days there has been reports that the Managing Director of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LRPC). Sumo Kupee has pocketed US$ 2.1 million which he allegedly generated in storage fee using the China Union Storage tank instead of the tanks at the LPRC in an attempt to deprive government of the storage fee.
“I just heard that. I haven’t seen it, so I don’t know what they are saying. But I can imagine like I said out there that LPRC doesn’t bring in a drop of fuel into the country. The fuel are brought in by importers. So, unless somebody say to me that this importer brought the fuel and they are going to sell it and give me US$2.1 million. But all of that I know. It is the usual Liberian hatred.If you can’t go up, you come down”- Sumo Kupee, Managing Director, Liberia Petroleum Refining Company
