The Director of the Board, Mallam Muhammad Nasiru Danmallam gave the directives while briefing top Management staff on the first pre-Hajj visit to Saudi Arabia and preparation for 2023 Hajj activities.

The Director also requested those who paid for the Hajj last year but missed the exercise due to any reason to report to the Board with the original receipt of payment to declare their interest to participate in this year’s hajj or get a refund.



He disclosed that a total of one hundred and eighty-five Intending Pilgrims who made the complete payment last year missed the hajj due to the shortage of Hajj seat slots as a result of insufficient Hajj allocation by Saudi Arabia.



The Director disclosed that the Board has already registered over one thousand Intending Pilgrims for this year’s Hajj exercise and has since kicked started arrangements for the Hajj operation.



He stated that Board has commenced negotiations with service providers in Saudi Arabia for the provision of Feeding and befitting accommodation in Makkah during the Hajj this year.



He reiterated the Board’s readiness to continue to render the best services to FCT contingent to this year’s hajj in line with the desire of the FCT Administration.
