The Executive Chairman of the Muslim Public Affairs Centre (MPAC, Nigeria), Disu Kamor and other notable dignitaries speaking at the Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers’ International Day for Tolerance Event held on Wednesday 17 November 2021.
This year’s event focused on “Whole of Society Approach: Shining examples of mitigating COVID-19 consequences.”
Mr Disu Kamor can be seen elaborating the efforts of the Muslim Coalition Against Covid-19, a collaborative initiative of fifty-four Muslim organisations across Nigeria aimed at pulling together the resources of the groups to support the government’s efforts to eradicate the COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria. The Coalition was formed during the first week of the lockdown in March 2020 and worked to implement a Comprehensive Support Plan which involves Intervention and Relief activities.

The Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers was initiated in 2013 as a direct result of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s report titled “Strengthening the role of mediation in the peaceful settlement of disputes, conflict prevention and resolution” (UN GA Report A/66/811, 2012) and the supporting guidance titled “UN Guidance for Effective Mediation” (UN GA Resolution 65/283, 2012).
