Amid stories making the rounds that only 60,000 pilgrims will perform the 2021 hajj, the Haramain has said that the quota for the hujjaj from different countries are expected to be finalised within two weeks.
This was contained in a tweet by Haramain today Tuesday. This particularly put to rest the unconfirmed report that the government of Saudi Arabia had allowed 60,000 pilgrims to perform 2021 hajj.
The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has said that the information on 60,000 remains inconclusive as the Hajj and Umrah Ministry charged with the affairs of Hajj is yet to take decision.
The commission urged Nigerians and intending pilgrims to wait for official communication from the appropriate authorities, and promised to furnish all stakeholders with any communication from Saudi Arabia.
