Kwara Gov names Senator Oloriegbe as Ameerul-Hajj 2024





Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has appointed Senator Ibrahim Yahya Oloriegbe as the leader of the state’s contingent (Ameerul-Hajj) to 2024 Hajj in Saudi Arabia.

This is contained in a press statement issued on Tuesday by governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaiye.

Recall that Senator Oloriegbe had been at a cross road with Governor AbdulRazaq who stalled his return to the National Assembly in the last election by supporting the incumbent Senator Salihu Mustapha to win the party’s ticket.

Kwara State has at least 3,102 pilgrims for this year’s Hajj — one of the highest in the country.

The statement said the choice of the senator is borne out of his experience and networks as a Muslim community leader.

The government believes that the senator will deploy his knowledge and understanding of the terrain to ensure improved coordination and efficiency for the exercise, according to the statement.
