Following Announcement Of The Fare, The Entire State Pilgrims’ Welfare Boards’ Executive Officers And Other Participants Gave The NAHCON Leadership A Standing Ovation For Doing A Job Well Done In Holding Down The Hajj Fare Below N2.5 Million Deposit Despite The Obvious Challenges. The Gathering Appreciated The Effort Put In Place By The NAHCON Chairman In Achieving This Feat On Behalf Of Nigerian Pilgrims.

In His Opening Remarks, Alhaji Kunle Hassan, Reminded The Gathering That All Stakeholders Do Not Have The Luxury Of Time And From Experience, We Know That Saudi Arabia Will Not Add An Hour Extra Once The Deadline For Landing Is Due. He Informed That The Commission Has Requested For More Hajj Seats, But NAHCON Is Still Waiting For Response. Therefore, In The Meantime, All States Are To Work With And Exhaust The Allocations They Have Been Granted Instead Of Waiting For More.
