Gov Bago announces Udhiya payment for all pilgrims in Niger





As part of efforts to make pilgrims fulfil their rites in the Holy Land of Makkah, the Executive Governor of the State, Farmer Umaru Muhammad Bago has approved the payment of Udhiyah (Animal Sacrifice) to all intending Pilgrims in the State.

In a press statement issued by the Executive Secretary, Niger State Pilgrims Welfare Board, Sheikh Muhammad Awwal Aliyu, he stated that the decision was taken out of magnanimity of the Governor to cushion the effect of the current financial turmoil faced in the country especially intending Pilgrims having suffered from this year’s Hajj fare.

The Executive Secretary also issued a stern warning to anyone who have collected money already from the pilgrims for the Udhiyah to refund the monies to the pilgrims immediately or face full wrath of the law.
