Making iMPACt Against COVID-19
Friday, 19 May 2020 | Shawwal 27, 1441 AH
Under the aegis of Muslim Coalition Against COVID-19, 54 Islamic organisations are pulling resources together to make impactful contributions to the nation’s efforts in the fight against the pandemic.
The Executive Chairman of Muslim Public Affairs Centre, MPAC, Disu Kamor who played a leading role in the formation of the coalition said MPAC initiated the idea of a nationwide coalition as a common front for Nigerian Muslims to organise and focus their efforts in a coordinated and integrated form.
“As individuals, communities, as a nation and even globally, we face an unprecedented level of threat to our lives, safety and well-being. This threat is certainly at a level never seen in our lifetimes, at least.
It is therefore important, as Muslim Nigerians, that we lean on one another, and learn from each other’s experience and expertise as we join and further the nation’s efforts to halt the spread of the virus and rid our nation of the ruinous affliction.
Rather than work as individual organisations alone, we feel our efforts as individual organisations will be better felt, better aligned and amplified simply by working within a coalition.
In the light of this, we propose the formation of a national coalition to be called Muslim Coalition Against COVID-19 to work together with other stakeholders to form a common front, supporting and assisting the nationwide intervention and relief efforts.” -Disu Kamor
