Lutheran Bishop Stresses Accountability
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

PHEBE, September 29 (LINA) – The head of the Lutheran Church in Liberia, Bishop D. Jensen Seyenkulo, has urged Liberians to practice accountability because partners are counting on the “wise use” of resources entrusted to them.

He said accountability by the church and its implementing partners is cardinal to the defense of the church’s integrity which, he noted, is on the line with funding partners.

Bishop Seyenkulo made the call at the weekend when the Lutheran Church and partners turned over a US$39,000 Isolation Unit to the Phebe Hospital in Suakoko on the outskirts of the provincial capital Gbarnga in Bong County.

He said while there is the possibility that more assistance will continue to come, partners will only continue to lend support when funds are properly accounted for by both the church and implementing partners.

“You have not seen anything yet but please let us make sure to do the right thing,” stressed the Lutheran Church head.

He told the Liberia News Agency that the church places emphasis on teaching, preaching, healing and implementation of projects, as evidenced by the dedication of the newly-erected isolation unit at the Phebe Hospital.

Bishop Seyenkulo praised implementing partners, especially the contractor, for the “excellent and professional execution of the project.”

 The Lutheran Church in Liberia is owner and operator of the Phebe and Curran Lutheran Hospitals in Bong and Lofa Counties and is also partner and sole operator of many learning and health institutions across the country.
