The coordinator of MICA Abuja chapter, Alhaji Abdulbasit Bakare, made the call in Abuja at the launching of a N250 million Islamic centre project.
He said: “the new orientation was necessary in view of the security challenges as well as unpatriotic tendencies of both leaders and followers in the country.”
Bakare said that the proposed Islamic centre would be a ``One Stop Islamic Centre'' meant for Islamic cultural awareness, re-orientation and national development.
He decried lack of peace, unity and religious tolerance, saying the centre would go a long way in providing a platform for solving some of the vices in the country.
The coordinator said that the centre, which is unique in Nigeria, would cater for spiritual, social, economic and political well being of Muslims as well as their healthy living through provision of fitness centre.
He called on other faith-based organisations, and civil society organisations to join MICA in evolving a virile and peaceful society.
