These collaborative efforts between NAHCON and the Saudi Embassy are anticipated to create a more conducive environment for effective communication and coordination, ultimately benefiting the thousands of pilgrims undertaking the sacred Hajj journey.

The commitment to fast-track processes reflects the shared vision of both entities to ensure the welfare of pilgrims and strengthen the bonds between Nigeria and Saudi Arabia.

In another development, NAHCON will soon conclude investigations into complaints received in response to its call for petitions against any of the Private Tour Operators approved to convey pilgrims for 2024 Hajj under the private sector. It would be recalled that on 13th of December, NAHCON announced the temporary suspension of Hajj slot allocations to tour operators.
