2024 Hajj: Gov Radda promises Udhiya package for Katsina pilgrims





Katsina State Governor, Malam Dikko Umaru Radda, has promised a Udhiya package of seven hundred and twenty Saudi riyals for each of the state’s intending pilgrims.

Similarly, the State Government also promised to provide its usual Sallah gift to pilgrims from the state while in the Holy Land.

Governor Dikko Umaru Radda disclosed this while inaugurating an eleven-member state delegation for this year’s Hajj at the Katsina Government House on Friday. The delegation is chaired by a former Deputy Governor of the state, Alhaji Tukur Ahmed Jikamshi,

Governor Radda directed both the Hajj delegation and the management of the Pilgrims’ Welfare Board to ensure that not a single kobo is deducted from the pilgrims’ basic traveling allowances for any reason.
