2024 Hajj: NAHCON constitutes committee to review feeding, accommodation guidelines





The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has constituted a committee to review guidelines on accommodation and catering services to enhance service delivery during the upcoming 2024 Hajj.

The acting Chairman of NAHCON, Malam Jalal Arabi, while inaugurating the committee on Tuesday, stated that the review of the existing guidelines would improve performance of service providers for the benefit of Nigerian pilgrims.

Arabi, who said the committee was not a new innovation, noted that it was another way to tinker with the existing mechanism in order to deliver better result.

” What we are doing now is not to introduce a rocket science but just to improve on the way we are doing things.

” Like it happens in some other parts of the world, we need to be dynamic. As it is the global practice, we have to improve in our ways, to be in conformity with the international best practices.”

The chairman urged the committee to approach the assignment with open mind and a keen sense of responsibility.

According to him, the report of the committee will have great promise in influencing how the commission will implement the 2023 accommodation and catering services in Saudi Arabia.
