Breaking: NAHCON Speaks On 2019 Hajj Fare

Hajj Reporters
The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON)  said that it has “not authorised any state Muslim pilgrims’ board to announce Hajj fare for 2019 as indices that determine final fare for Hajj are yet to be determined by the Commission, state pilgrims’ bureaus and other stakeholders.”
A statement signed by Fatima Sanda Usara, Head of  Public Affairs Division of NAHCON  while drawing the attention of the general public especially the 2019 Muslim intending pilgrims on issue of hajj fare, the statement further said that the “registration of pilgrims in Nigeria had commenced in November of 2018.The registration requires a tentative deposit of N1.5m (one million, five hundred thousand Naira),in bank draft, with any of the certified state Muslim pilgrims’ boards, agencies or commissions. This deposit can be done fully or by instalments and a copy of the draft should be presented to the respective state board. Intending pilgrims are warned not to pay cash to any agent or board member as payment is strictly through the banks.”
It said that “NAHCON has released an updated list of approved 2019 licenced Tour Operators with the corresponding number of slots allocated to each. This followed a 2-day hearing and verification of claims by the NAHCON committee set up for Consideration of Appeals by Appellant Companies for 2019 Hajj. A total of 115 out of 147 companies that applied for the licencehave so far been approved to participate in the year’s Umrah and Hajj exercises. The applications were submitted online.”
