NAHCON board to be inaugurated today

by admin

Barring any last minute change of plans, the 5th board of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) will be inaugurated by Vice President Kashim Shettima at the Presidential Villa today.

According to a source at the commission who asked not to be named because he has no permission to speak to the press on the matter, the inauguration is scheduled to hold by 3pm.

President Bola Tinubu had January 10 this year appointed three full time commissioners and six zonal representatives into the board of the commission.

The President had earlier in October last year approved the appointment of Malam Jalal Ahmed Arabi as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the apex Hajj regulatory body in Nigeria in acting capacity.  

The commissioners appointed are Aliu Abdulrazaq  (Commissioner, Policy, Personnel, & Finance), Prince Anofi Elegushi (Commissioner, Operations) and Professor Abubakar A. Yagawal (Commissioner, Planning & Research).
