Liberia Football Association president, Musa Hassan Bility, has stepped down as Chief Executive Officer of SRIMEX Oil and Gas Company.
Wadei Powell, former Vice President for Administration and Human Resource officer of Cellcom GSM replaces Mr. Bility as CEO of SRIMEX.
The Liberian football chief, who is also an Executive Committee member of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said he no longer have the capacity to stay on.
His resignation comes less than four months to what appeared to be LFA’s toughest election in recent times.
Football stakeholders are expected to go to the poll in March 2018 to elect new a corps of officials to stir the affairs of Liberia’s football for four years.
“I do not have the capacity to hold on as CEO and it is only fair not to pretend,” LFA boss told a news conference at the SRIMEX head office on November 30, 2017.
What is now one of Liberia’s leading petroleum suppliers was first established in 2003 as a general trading group; importing commodities such as cement, electrical equipment, cooking oil, and milk powder.
In 2005, SRIMEX Oil and Gas Company was licensed to import petroleum products, which extends to the distribution, commercial retail, bunkering, as well as oil exploration.
According to Mr. Bility, Powell’s appointment would mark the achievement of Liberian women and take SRIMEX a step towards believing in Liberia.
“After many years in the position, I feel that I have nothing new to offer the company. My primary focus now is to ensure that Powell is equipped to succeed,” Bility said.
He has moved on to serve as chairman of the company’s board, in addition to functioning as special advisor to the management team.
Bility further that he got no doubt that Powell will do far better compare to what he did to make young Liberian women entrepreneur proud.
He cited some of his accomplishments as bringing investment into the company and ensuring that it was well managed.
With Powell in charge of SRIMEX, Liberians will see a better and more responsible, customer friendly and efficient company,” Bility asserted.
