MPAC Nigerian of the Decade!
Thursday, 2 January 2020.
83-year-old Imam Abubakar Abdullahi of Barkin Ladi LGA, Plateau State, Nigeria is receiving this recognition for his humanitarian efforts during the sectarian violence in Plateau State where he selflessly risked his own life to save the members of another religious community, who would have likely been killed without his intervention.
Once again congratulations to Imam Abubakar Abdullahi for standing up for Humanity.

As you’re here…
MPAC has one humble request from you…
Thousands of Nigerian Muslims rely on the services we provide at MPAC and thousands more from around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the significant challenges we face in dealing with Muslim-related issues in a heightened Islamophobic environment, MPAC is constantly under financial strain to meet our financial needs.
To maintain editorial and financial independence, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement, MPAC relies only on donations from individuals like you.
It is easy to understand the importance of organisations that do the sort of work we do at MPAC in today’s climate. Please support us financially and please support us for as little as N1000 a month. It only takes a minute to make a one-off donation or to set up a standing order with your bank. Jazakallah khayran.
