-Full Gospel President Disappointed In LMA
The status of a proposed public library project in Kakata, Margibi County is said to be in limbo as there is no proper account of funds raised during the ground breaking ceremony for the project.

More than three years since the Full Gospel Fellowship Margibi County branch in collaboration with the Liberia Minister Association in Minnesota broke grounds for the construction of a public library in the county but not much has been heard or said about the project.
During the ground breaking ceremony, Representative Ben A. Fofana gave the amount of US$1,000 with others providing cash for the project, but the project it is yet to begin.

The financial target for the project is put at half a million United Stated dollars. The building when constructed will contain a hall, two security rooms, four bathrooms, four offices, library section and a cue center.

But, one person who has expressed disappointment over the delay in the implementation of the project on the part of the Liberia Minister Association, is the President of the Full Gospel Fellowship in Kakata, Rev. Gbarngawoe Eddie Seyboe.

Rev. Seyboe told newsmen in Kakata recently that though the vision to construct the library is not dying down, their hope and confidence in the LMA and the assurance they given to assist the Full Gospel in the process is washing away and by that they are actually disappointed.

He explained that the library project should have started long since but the Ebola crisis disrupted it. He stated that since the Ebola crisis, the Full Gospel has been in communication with the Liberia Minister Association about the status of the project, but there is no news as to how far they are with the plan.

Giving a brief history of the project, the clergyman said the dream came when he travelled to the United States of America some years back and made a proposal to the Liberia Minister Association for the construction of the library, an idea he noted was embraced by the association.

He added that after the proposal was embraced, the LMA came to Margibi County and raised few dollars to jumpstart the project, but the Ebola crisis came and disrupted the entire process.

Rev. Seyboe narrated that their initial plan was to construct a reading room for pastors to make research and do other internet work but was later decided to change it as a public library.

“The intention of the LMA was to return to the country because the initiative is a joint project with the Full Gospel Fellowship of Margibi County and the association in Minnesota,” he said.

According to him, the two organizations then secured an acre of land which is still being reserved for the project. He used the occasion to call on the public to wait as they are making frantic efforts in ensuring that information about the project and account of funds raised during the ground breaking is revealed.
