Kaduna Assures Intending Pilgrims On Hajj

Chairman of Task Force of the 2015 hajj exercise in Kaduna State, Senator Sani Sale, has assured intending pilgrims in the state who have paid for this year's exercise that none of them would be left behind.

Sale who spoke with newsmen at the Mando Hajj Camp in Kaduna yesterday, said the task force had sanitised this year's operation because the Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board now has a credible register.
He said the task force had painstakingly verified all names on the register in order to make sure that no pilgrim who has paid for the trip is swapped for another.
The chairman said the task force had conducted a one day public hearing in all senatorial districts in order to receive complaints from intending pilgrims who have paid but will not make the trip due to no fault of theirs.
While noting that most of the complaints concerned the previous hajj operations, he said the task force would submit its report to the state government after returning from Saudi Arabia, adding that officials found wanting may be handed over to the police. The state had at yesterday airlifted 3,158 pilgrims to Saudi Arabia.
