by admin

The Nigerian Senate has confirmed the appointment of Mallam Jalal Ahmad Arabi as the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

The appointment of Al Arabi and three Commissioners was confirmed during plenary on Wednesday following the request by President Bola Tinubu.

President Tinubu also asked the Senate to approve the appointment of Aliu Abdulrazak, Anofiu Elegushi and Prof. Abubakar Yagawal as NAHCON Commissioners.

Recall that President Tinubu had on October 17 appointed Arabi to serve as the NAHCON Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for a term of four (4) years in the first instance.

The president made the appointment after he directed the outgoing Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Commission, Alhaji Zikrullah Kunle Hassan, to proceed on 3-months pre-retirement leave as provisioned by Public Service Rule (PSR) 120243 with effect from October 18, 2023, leading to his eventual retirement from service on January 17, 2023.
