The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has urged intending pilgrims from Nigeria to remain calm as necessary arrangements are in place to protect their interest.
This was stated in a press statement released by the commission on Wednesday, monitored by Hotjist.com, and signed by the Head of PublicAffairs (NAHCON), Fatima Sanda Usara.
She said that “NAHCON acknowledges the outpour of interests and enquiries by individuals, pressmen and other stakeholders over the cancellation of international pilgrimage for 2020 Hajj.”
“The Commission’s leadership, board members and management welcome the news with complete surrender to the will of the Almighty, and commend the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for this brave decision.”
“NAHCON is sensitive to all enquiries & concerns that greeted Saudi Arabia’s much awaited decision. NAHCON assures general public that as soon as its leadership fulfils all admin/official requirements, Chairman/CEO shall hold a press briefing where all enquiries will be addressed.”
