10 March 2014, Monrovia – The President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Oil Company of Liberia, Dr. Randolph McClain, has dismissed as “malicious falsehood and bad journalism” stories being run in some local newspapers of late, accusing him of undermining the ongoing oil sector reform process.

In a statement, Dr. McClain made it clear that at no time has he undertaken any activity that would undermine the integrity of the ongoing reform in the oil sector as alleged by some local newspapers.

He pointed out that contrary to what is being alleged in the newspapers concerned, he is working assiduously to ensure that NOCAL remains focused on the reform of the sector for the benefit of the country and its people.
