Lagos State is best in Hajj operations — Imam Lawal





Lagos State has been described as the best and most committed and dynamic of all the states in Nigeria in hajj operations.
A member of the State Ad-hoc committee on  2019 hajj operation, Imam AbdulHakeem Lawal, stated this at the Murtala Muhammad airport, Ikeja, Lagos, yesterday when the fifth batch of Lagos pilgrims arrived from Saudi Arabia.
Imam Lawan who was corroborated by some pilgrims, stated that the seamless nature of handling the hajj operations to and from Makkah and ensuring convenience for pilgrims was unprecedented and unmatched by any other state in the federation.
This feat according to Imam Lawal who is also the National Missioner of IKWAN Muslim society, was the reason the State has continued to receive awards of excellence from the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) on yearly basis.
The 432 pilgrims on board Flynas Airbus A330 touched down yesterday exactly 9.05am. 
It will be recalled that 2,269 pilgrims embarked on the Holy pilgrimage from the state. The return journey started last Saturday with 432 pilgrims. The arrival of the fifth flight has therefore brought the total number of Lagos State pilgrims that have arrived in Lagos so far to 2,150.
The last flight which is expected in Lagos today according to schedule, will convey the remaining 119 Lagos pilgrims which will include the State Amirul-Hajj, Dr. AbdulHakeem AbdulLateef, Chairman of the Ad-hoc committee, Alhaji. Ahmed Jebe, other members of the committee, the Board Secretary, Mr. Rahman Ishola and other officials of the board.
