Rep. Taa Wongbe Angry with ArcelorMittal

MONROVIA: One of Nimba County’s newest lawmakers is not happy with ArcelorMittal Liberia courtesy extended him and other colleagues during their first visit at the facilities of this multimillion-dollar company operating on his home soil.

Following the tour of the company’s facilities, Nimba County Doe Administrative District Representative Taa Wongbe used his Facebook page to decry the poor reception accorded him and others by the Management of ArcelorMittal Liberia.

He wrote: “WOW! I just walked out of a briefing with ArcelorMittal Liberia feeling insulted! I asked the CEO of ArcelorMittal Liberia, Mr. Josephus (Joep) Coenen, about their annual revenue in Liberia and he said he doesn’t know. I asked for 2023, 2022, 2019 and he looked lawmakers from Nimba, Grand Bassa, and Bong dead in our faces and said “I don’t know”. I asked him twice and he said he doesn’t know! Wow‼️”

Representative Wongbe said further: “I informed him that I am a former CEO and no CEO will EVER tell you they don’t know their revenue. I feel insulted. Liberian people should be ANGRY! I told him what my father used to tell me! ‘Taa…there’s only one thing God is not making anymore of on earth and that’s LAND. Invest in land.’ What ArcelorMittal Liberia is extracting from our land cannot be replenished!!”

“These guys have been taking us for a ride,” she said, referring the AML managers. “They did these nice videos about how they are training people, how much they are investing in Liberia, and all the nice stuff, but couldn’t tell me what percentage of the 79 BILLION revenue ArcelorMittal Liberia makes globally!?? Talking about they provide $3.5 million annually for social development like we should be happy! What!!!?? Per their own presentation, Liberia is their 4th largest operations! It’s in the pictures.

“Ladies and gentlemen, this is how our country is being mortgaged! I walked out with colleagues begging me to stay. I couldn’t stay! I felt insulted. Please DO NOT call me for a meeting if you are unprepared. It’s going to be a loooooooong 6 years!”
