FROM MUHAMMAD KABIR, MADINA
Adequate and timely supply of food by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), to Nigerian Pilgrims who are staying in Medina have made those who have excess to share with non Nigerian Pilgrims.
Some pilgrims who spoke to Hajj Reporters in Madinah said the idea has seriously helped them to save their money and had also allowed them to eat what is healthier with more nutritional value.
Hadiza Abdullahi from Bauchi State said She receives food every morning and evening from officials who, she doesn’t even know but with a sign of Nigerian Green and White inscription.
Hadiza, who gives out her excess food to one of the Journalists staying in the same hotel with her, said, “this is too much for me”,
Salisu Abdullahi, a Student University of Medina said he was contracted by officials of NAHCON to share food to various houses of Nigerian Pilgrims.
He said, ” you can see that because of the availability of the food we are given two plates to each Pilgrim and most of them are telling us they are so grateful to NAHCON “.
