Forex/Hajj fare: Jigawa Gov approves N1m for each pilgrim





The Governor of Jigawa State, Malam Umar Namadi has said that there will be a subsidy of N1 million available for every person planning to go on hajj.

Spokesperson of the Jigawa Pilgrims Welfare Board, Murtala Usman, disclosed this to reporters on Monday.

Mr. Usman indicated that the subsidy is intended for individuals from Jigawa who had previously submitted their payment for the 2024 hajj exercise to Makkah.

“Each intending pilgrim will now pay about N900,000 only as against the N1.9 million increase announced by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

“From the initial, the NAHCON allocated 1,518 seats for Jigawa State, but only 1,260 seats were sold to intending pilgrims and completed their payment.

“The subsidy gesture announced by the governor is effective on those who have deposited their amount before the sudden increase of N1.9 million Hajj fare increase by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria“, Usman said.
