    ICESCO and Nigeria Look Forward to Future Cooperation

    10 September 2020

    Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, Director-General (DG) of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ICESCO), and Mr. Danjuma Faruk, Ambassador of Nigeria to Morocco, discussed on September 9, cooperation routes between the two parties.

    Dr. AlMalik reaffirmed ICESCO’s commitment to communicate with Member States, identify their needs and priorities, and design tailor-cut programs. Inclusive processes are cornerstone to ICESCO’s new strategy as The Organization cooperates with non-Member States to benefit the Member States, the DG indicated.

    ICESCO launched multiple initiatives to curb the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on education, science, and culture, highlighted Dr. AlMalik. The most notable initiatives were “ICESCO Digital Home,” the “Societies We Want,” and the “Global Humanitarian Coalition.” The Organization also provides aid to multiple Member States to maintain the continuity of schooling, mitigate the effects of the pandemic on women and young entrepreneurs, and produces best-cost disinfectants.

    ICESCO placed African Member States in a priority status during the outbreak. The Organization and other donors assisted 24 countries to ensure the continuity of schooling with enhanced digital educational content for its beneficiaries.

    The Organization also distributed medical equipment and COVID-19 protective kits to other 10 countries, including Nigeria. The Organization also granted training sessions to set up best-cost sanitizers production units.

    The Nigerian Chargé d’affaires commended ICESCO’s achievements and assistance to Member States during the pandemic. He underlined Nigeria’s willingness to continue the constructive cooperation with the Organization.

    Mr. Amino Mohamed Wakely, Minister Plenipotentiary at the Nigerian Embassy in Rabat, and several ICESCO’s heads of sectors also attended the meeting.
