A highly placed official who disclosed this to HAJJ REPORTERS said that “NAHCON has compelled some hajj service providers to make refunds for services that didn’t meet the contractual specification or standard agreed upon during the 2019 hajj exercise”.
“As I am speaking to you, we are speaking NAHCON has credited our accounts and God’s willing, we may commence inviting pilgrims by tomorrow to come with a proof of identification for the purpose of disbursing the refunds as directed by NAHCON”
On the amount to be refunded back to the pilgrims, our sources said that though the accounting department is still working on the exact amount to be refunded back to pilgrims but said each pilgrim may likely be refunded the sum of N10,000”
