(mylbsonline.com/Liberia/Oct.21/2013) Vice President, Joseph Boakai, has challenged Liberian Christian leaders to fully engage government in the fight against malpractices in the country.

Vice President Boakai made specific reference to malpractices such as corruption, policy failure and bad governance.

He called on the Liberian Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI) and the church not to relinquish their traditional and ethnical role to only the politicians in the running of the nation.

The Vice President said: “Christian must continue building positive bonds between politicians, the State and the church for good governance.”

The Vice President made the statement when he addressed members of the newly created chapters of the revitalized Liberian Full Gospel Men’s Christian Fellowship International and a seven-man Nigerian team at an out rich dinner held at the October 19, 2013 in Monrovia.

Speaking at the dinner, on behalf of his colleagues, the delegation’s head, Dr. Martins Obasohan, said: “The fellowship is focused on networking and capacity building of its members.”

“They are in the country to revive the Liberian chapter of the Christian organization,” Dr. Obasohan added.

He stressed the need for Liberian Christian professionals and business men to receive Jesus Christ as their savior, if they must be saved.

The FGBMFI, once active in the country was broken down as a result of the Liberian civil war.

In 2009, the Nigerian branch of FGBMFI held a convention in the process in restoring the Liberian branch,  in which about ten chapters  have been put in place in Herbel and Kakata Cities, Margibi County as well as various others in Central Monrovia and its surrounding parts.
