Liberia: Churches Concerned About Dismissed GAC Workers

The Liberia Council of Churches has expressed concerns over several issues including the speedy resolution of the GAC redundant workers, national reconciliation, the resolution and clarification of the Liberian oil sector and the pending bill on same sex relationship, among others.

The LCC, in a release issued Thursday, called on the 53rd Legislature to address these outstanding issues as they resume their call of duty to the people of Liberia.

The Liberian religious institution said it will work with the government of Liberia and the international community to ensure that the country's development agenda is fully implemented for the good of every Liberian.

The council however called on all state and non-state actors to recognize the church as the largest social and religious organization and a crucial partner in the reconstruction of the country.

Meanwhile, the Liberian Council of Churches has expressed regrets over the death of Grand Bassa County Senator John Whitfield.
