He said it is only through the states hajj allocation sharing formula that accountability, proper record keeping can be achieved.

Mr Lapai has “called on NAHCON to as a matter of urgency stop the ongoing online registration of pilgrims as it’s only through the State’s sharing formula to the twenty five (25) Local Government Areas of the State, that accountability, proper record keeping and coordination both here and in Saudi Arabia can be achieved. States Boards must have pre knowledge of any Pilgrim traveling through State as they are liable for any misconduct or absconding of any pilgrims.”

 

Hajj Reporters reports that Niger state has suspended collection of Hajj deposit since last year, saying It is not wise for banks or NAHCON to open another portal of registration when the lists of rollover pilgrims is pending.
