The Ogun State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board has commenced medical screening for intending pilgrims to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the 2022 holy pilgrimage exercise.
The Executive Secretary of the Board, Alhaji Salau Dauda, made this known while addressing the intending pilgrims that the screening was part of effort towards ensuring a hitch free Hajj exercise.
Alhaji Salau stated that the screening exercise is for those who have paid the projected N2.5 million hajj fare, while those who are yet to pay the balance would be communicated in due course.
He enjoined intending pilgrims to cooperate with the officials of the Board to achieve the desired result, and shun any act that might prevent them from performing the holy pilgrimage.
In their separate remarks, two of the intending pilgrims, Alhaja Ganiyat Adeyemi and Alhaji Owonikoko Adesina appreciated the board for the seamless medical exercise, as it would allow them to know their health status, promising to be good ambassadors of the State both at home and the holy land.
