Hajj 2023: Remit complete Hajj fares in 48hours —- NAHCON





Chairman National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, Alhaji Zikrullah Kunle Hassan has given Friday 28th April as deadline for 2023 Hajj fare remittance by boards, agencies and commissions of State Muslim Pilgrims’ Welfare managers.

This was made clear Wednesday 26th April 2023 during a decisive and marathon meeting with Chief Executives of State Pilgrims’ Welfare Boards/ Agencies/Commissions in the Hajj House headquarters of NAHCON. The meeting was to address critical issues hinging on remittances of Hajj fare by pilgrims in order to finalize on number of eligible enrollees for the 2023 Hajj from Nigeria. Determination of the number would dictate figures with which to the sign agreements with airlines.

According to Alhaji Zikrullah Kunle Hassan, the Commission would gladly work with any amount remitted by Friday deadline and subsequently sign agreements for the 2023 airlift to Saudi Arabia based on that number. He explained that 50% down payment to the air carriers is expected upon signing of agreement while another 35% would follow after deployment of aircraft for the airlift by the carriers.

The NAHCON highest ranking officer lamented that the remittance had to take this long bearing in mind that all other arrangements depend on the confirmed number of Hajj fare payers before conclusion.
