Hajj 2022: Lagos begins weekend lectures for Intending Pilgrims





The Lagos State Government has urged intending pilgrims for the Y2022 Holy pilgrimage to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through the State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, to ensure that they make themselves available for the weekend lectures in their respective Local Government Areas.

The weekend lectures which commences on Saturday 21st May, 2022 in all the designated Local Government Areas is designed to keep them abreast of the ethics and activities of Hajj exercise both in Nigeria and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The Hon. Commissioner for Home Affairs, Prince Anofiu Olanrewaju Elegushi disclosed this in a statement signed by the Board Secretary, Imam Hakeem Kosoko, recently. He stated that the weekend lectures would run simultaneously in all the Local Government Areas of the State for at least three weeks.

Elegushi further disclosed that the lectures which have been digitalized, would afford the pilgrims the opportunity to learn from the Ulamah (Islamic scholars) who have been adequately prepared to strengthen their knowledge and also expose them to facts about some historical sites in the Holy land.
