As part of its advocacy role, the Evangelical Fellowship of Sierra Leone (EFSL) yesterday released an evaluation report on President Koroma’s one year in office.
In his preamble, the Secretary General of EFSL Aiah Foday-Khabenje explained that his organization is an umbrella body of over forty-five denominations and Para-church organizations, all committed to the promotion of peace ,justice, good governance and democratic principles.
The Secretary-General also touched on topical issues and specifically commended government for handling the sanitary conditions; containing the global rice crisis; the passing of the ACC bill into law; the handling of the ongoing cocaine trial and the conduct of the local council elections.
He however registered great disappointment over the slow pace at which the much celebrated Attitudinal Change Campaign is being administered, adding that President Koroma’s call for change was greeted with enthusiasm as it constitutes one of the factors that had been diagnosed as the ‘canker worm’ of society, thereby rendering the country underdeveloped.
He expressed grave concern over the deplorable state of health care services in the country, noting that government should put an end to the unethical practices evident in hospitals and health centers throughout the country.
With a heavy heart, he disclosed that, a senior member of his organization, Rev. Musa Marah who has recently returned from Nairobi on a study tour, died from bleeding after extracting his tooth.
He concluded that, a year has passed by since the transitional report was completed and summated to government, but since then nothing has been done to bring erstwhile government officials to book.
