Arabi described Governor Uzodinma as a pillar of support to the Commission and described his interventions in ensuring that intending Muslim pilgrims from his State are able to participate in this year’s Hajj.

In his words, “ you have been a pillar of support to us in the Commission through your support in ensuring that Muslims in Imo state will be able to participate in Hajj.
