NAHCON urges NLC against encroachment of Hajj airlift





The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, has raised the alarm over plans by the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, to disrupt the ongoing Hajj airlift operations, adding that there is limited time left before the closure of Jeddah and Madinah airports for the pilgrimage.

NAHCON said: “Information reaching the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) indicates that there are plans by a section of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to disrupt the ongoing Hajj airlift operations.

“This is coming despite the initial understanding that Hajj flights would not be affected.

“The Commission appreciates concern of the NLC over the welfare of its members, however, NAHCON wishes to call upon the NLC to respect the sanctity of Hajj as a religious obligation which Muslims do not take lightly.
