Bauchi State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board said it has recorded no fewer than 2000 depositors who are willing to perform the 2023 hajj.

He said National Hajj Commission NAHCON has allocated 3132 Hajj slots to Bauchi, and explained that the Board has allocated the same seats to all its pay points based on their respective 2019 Hajj performances.
” We have constituted committees that visited all the pay points in the state to issue Bank Deposit Tellers and official receipts to our intending pilgrims” Imam Abdurrahman added.
He further unveiled that his Board has completed arrangements to remit a 50% deposit of its total allocation to NAHCON.
Imam Abdurrahman further advise the prospective depositors who paid less than 2.5M to improve their payment to enable the Board to achieve other processes on time.
Imam Abdurrahman further explained that, during a recent pre-Hajj visit in Makkah, negotiation between Bauchi and service providers for the provision of feeding and befitting accommodation close to Haram reached an advanced stage.
He then commended His Excellency, the Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Abdulkadir Muhammad for his commitment to providing all the needed support to ensure the comfort of the pilgrims.
