LP Adjusts Support To Bassa Hospital -Gives In To Presidential Intervention, But Set to Build Warehouse, Provide Lights

The fire incident which charred critical facilities at the Government Hospital in Grand Bassa County attracted enormous public empathy from far and wide. The administration of the hospital, understandably, hungered for support to restore full services, and altruistic persons and institutions offered to intervene. Amongst them was the Liberty Party whose National Chairman, Hasan Musa Bility, went on the scene, and after listening to the lamentations of the hospital administration for support, pledged substantial contribution. But before irks got dried on the promise, the administration remembered that the President of the country, Dr. George Manneh Weah, had earlier taken care of much or all of what the LP Chairman was offering. Now the Hospital has asked Mr. Bility to adjust and take care of other basic necessities—a request to which he has consented. The Analyst reports.

Opposition Liberty Party has agreed to request from the administration of the Grand Bassa Government Hospital to forego earlier donations and promises it has made to the hospital after a major fire disaster at the hospital.

In a recent visit to the Bassa Government Hospital, Liberty Party committed to honor the hospital’s request for assistance with urgently needed hospital equipment and supplies, in the amount of $30,000 United States Dollars, along with a personal donation from LP Chairman, Musa Hassan Bility, of 1000 gallons of fuel through the Bility Development Foundation.

But in a communication from the hospital dated March 14, 2022, and signed by the Medical Director, Dr. Moses Weidehgar, the Hospital administration commended the Liberty Party for its humanitarian gesture but requested that the donations be diverted to other things because the Government of Liberia through President Weah was taking care of them.

LP quoted the Hospital administration’s letter as saying that, “The President of Liberia was given the same Urgent Needs budget which he promised to underwrite the cost…He has started already”.

The Letter continued: “In this light, we would appreciate highly for you to build us a warehouse and provide lights for the operating room in addition to the fuel promised”.

The Hospital administration welcomed “the much needed intervention from the President.”

The LP says it has agreed to this new request and is working with the hospital administration to deliver. LP will present the donation of fuel to the hospital by the end of this week, according to a release signed Martin S. Kollah, Secretary General and approved by Musa Hassan Bility, National Chairman.
