•382 2nd batch Nasarawa pilgrims arrive
Madinah
Jigawa State Pilgrims Welfare Board has
disclosed that only 727 out of 1,472 Pilgrim
seats allocated to the state by the National Hajj
Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) had completed
their payment at the moment.
Muslim worshippers, some carrying
umbrellas to protect them from the
scorching sun, gather for prayer at
Namirah mosque near Mount Arafat, also
known as Jabal al-Rahmah (Mount of
Mercy), where the Prophet Mohammed is
believed to have given his final sermon,
on August 31, 2017, ahead of the climax of
hajj.

This is about 50 percent of the total seats
allocated to the state by NAHCON will be
occupied. The commission had extended the
deadline of registration for the third time and by
one week which ended on Wednesday July 25.
This was disclosed by the Executive Secretary,
Alhaji Sani Alhassan while speaking with
Vanguard in his office Wednesday.
He also stated that the board has completed
arrangements for the 2018 hajj operation.
“We have already completed our preparation,
we have remitted N858 million to the NAHCON.
With about 28 centres across the state, we have
concluded vaccination, distribution of uniform
and bags to our intending Pilgrims, but the
training is on”, he explained.
He advised the 727 intending pilgrims who have
already completed full payments to prepare their
minds on performing an acceptable hajj
operation and desist from anything that could
tanish the image of Nigeria and the host
country, Saudi Arabia.
Also, the board´s Public Relations Officer,
Comrade Ibrahim Kanya said the board has also
distributed relevant books and barges to the
intending Pilgrims in the state.
He further called on those who are yet to
complete their payment to do so immediately,
adding that the board has completed
arrangements for the 2018 hajj operation.
Also, the Public Relations Officer of the board,
Comrade Ibrahim Kanya said the board has also
distributed relevant books and barges to the
intending Pilgrims in the state.
Meanwhile, the second batch of Nasarawa State
pilgrims comprising of 245 males and 135
females arrived Madinah, Saudi Arabia on
