An Abuja-based Hajj and Umrah agency, Comerel Travels has emerged the best Hajj tour operator (private) in Nigeria for the 2018 (1439 AH) Hajj exercise.
The company, which started Hajj and Umrah operations a decade ago, was adjudged the best for the fourth consecutive time (2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018) by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) on Tuesday at the National Mosque Auditorium, Abuja.
The commission also named Al-Hujjaj International Umrah & Hajj Service and Hajj Mabrur Ventures Limited – both in Lagos – as the first and second runner-ups respectively.
The top three awards, according to the organisers, were presented to the winners in recognition of their outstanding performances at the 2018 Hajj operations, barely two months before the commencement of the 2019 exercise.
An elated Hajj Mabrur team took to the social media platform to break the good news with a picture and video showing its MD/CEO, Alhaji AbdulHameed Solate as he receives the prestigious award from top officials of NAHCON.
The broadcast message, titled; “An honour of outstanding achievement”, read in parts; “Glory by Allah’s help, we blossom with pride that amongst thousands of agencies, we are one of the most prestigious and recognised, which demonstrates our technical expertise as we exemplify the importance and facilitate the right performance of Hajj and Mabrur in Nigeria.
“This is indeed a signal to keep our heads edging out in the industry and never fall short of our standard of award winning service.”
The Chairman of Comerel Hajj and Umrah Agency, Architect Umaru Karaye thanked the commission for the awards and promised to continue to improve on the agency’s operational processes and procedures by being flexible, innovative and proactive.
“Our superlative services have surpassed our customers’ expectations, and this is attested to by previous customers’ testimonies and the industry regulator’s awards to Comerel for the second year in a row as the best Hajj and Umrah travel agency in Nigeria.
“This encouragement has therefore informed our decision to introduce an additional product, thus expanding our services to benefit a wider spectrum of Nigerians,” he said.
