Abuja, March 28, 2019 (NAN) The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has commended the Kogi State Pilgrims Commission for being the
first to renew its operational license in compliance with the rules and regulations of the commission.
Alhaji Abdullahi Muhammad, the Executive Chairman of NAHCON made this known in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, by Mrs Fatima Usara, the commission’s Head of Public Affairs Division.
The NAHCON boss also applauded the state pilgrim’s commission for its proper management of general matters pertaining to the ongoing preparations for the 2019 Hajj.
« Milestones like these ease the job of the nation’s hajj handlers and curtail hiccups that may be experienced during peak period of the annual Muslims’ pilgrimage to the Holy land.
« Apart from renewal of its license, the Kogi Hajj commission has moved ahead in decentralising structures of pilgrims’ screening across its three Senatorial Districts.
« The commission has also been in the forefront of carrying out pilgrims’ enlightenment on electronic and print media in addition to one-on-one pilgrim’s education campaigns.
« Initiatives like these explain the coordinated execution of
hajj schedules that Kogi state has come to be identified with, » Muhammad said.
He said the state was also commended during the 2018 hajj commission for its timely preparations that ultimately saw its pilgrims being first to be transported into and from Saudi Arabia.
Muhammad encouraged the Kogi pilgrim’s commission under the Chairmanship of Sheikh Luqman Imam-Abdullahi to maintain its admirable feats in hajj management. (
