The first batch of Adamawa state Pilgrims to Hajj 1022 has arrived Makkah after spending eight days in Madinah, the Prophet’s City.
The Pilgrims, numbering five hundred and sixty have performed Umrah at the Grand Mosque shortly on their arrival in Makkatul Mukarrama on Tuesday and retired to the accommodation to await Hajj exercise next week.
According to an Adamawa Media Team Hajj2022 reporter in Makkah, “the Pilgrims are accommodated in a 5-star hotel, not far from Haram the Grand Mosque”.
He observed that the Pilgrims who were visibly excited with the first class accommodation, expressed gratitude to Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri and the Executive Secretary of the state Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, Malam Abubakar Salihu for the befitting hotel secured for Adamawa State Pilgrims which, he said, is far better than that of other states.
In an interview, the Executive Secretary said Governor Fintiri has directed him to secure accommodation, near the Grand Mosque for Adamawa pilgrims to enable them perform their religious activities without stresses of walking for a long distance.
Malam Abubakar Salihu explained that necessary arrangements have been made for the Pilgrims to carry out their religious activities in ease as well as comfort both onshore and offshore.
