MPAC Participates at GIABA's Workshop
GIABA is an institution of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) responsible for facilitating the adoption and implementation of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Financing of Terrorism (CFT) in West Africa. It is also a FATF-Styled Regional Body (FSRB) working with its member States to ensure compliance with international AML/CFT standards.
As part of its public service programmes, MPAC is desirous of participating in the works currently ongoing for the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the Northern part of Nigeria. We are mobilising emergency aids and supports for some of the 1.53 million internally displaced persons in Nigeria.
The IDPs are mostly people who were forced to flee the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East of Nigeria- people displaced and uprooted from their natural habitats. They are currently living in various camps scattered across the North. Other IDPs were displaced as a result of the government-led counterinsurgency operations, inter-communal violence and flooding. MPAC is joining forces with others to show a strong Muslim face and presence at the camps.
Although the Boko Haram are people preaching hate and violent ideology that has no place in Islam, to some of the non-Muslims who have suffered untold hardships in their hands, they are given to the misconceived belief that Boko Haram are Muslims who are promoting an Islamic cause and pursuing an Islamic agenda.
The purpose of this intervention campaign in the IDPs camps is therefore to bring relief to all the victims and to win hearts and minds. Starting from this Ramadan, MPAC calls on all Muslims to show kindness and mercy towards fellow human beings through generous donations and supports in the form of funds, household/living materials, toys and medications. Ramadan is the best season for offering good deeds and gaining rewards.
MPAC will do all in its capacity to go into the IDPs camps and make a difference in the lives of the people. MPAC is very proud that many Muslims who utilise the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan to share their own blessings with others will aid this campaign and facilitate its objectives. More>>>
