NAHCON: Hajj’s flight leaves for Saudi Arabia

This year’s hajj inaugural flight left yesterday for Jeddah in Saudi Arabia aboard MaxAir flight VM1001.

The flight consisted of 516 pilgrims from Borno state and 13 officials departed Maiduguri, Borno state capital to Jeddah at 17:31hrs.

NAHCON Chairman Alhaji Zikrullah Kunle Hassan thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for his sterling leadership and his support to the commission.

According to Hassan, Mr. President’s backing helped in facilitating the event and the entire 2022 Hajj operation despite the short notice within which the fourth board had to organise “the emergency Hajj management.”

Alhaji Hassan hailed the Borno state Governor, Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum “who has always left his doors open to NAHCON’s demands and went the extra mile in ensuring a hitch-free inaugural flight in the state capital.”

He said the development was an indication that Borno state is growing stronger from its challenges.

He urged the pilgrims to maximize the opportunity of going for Hajj by avoiding any action that would be detrimental to the exercise and the image of Nigeria.
