Written by on May 31, 2022
AlhajiSadiq Musa, South South Commissioner for National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), says the commission is receiving full support from the government and people of the zone towards a smooth Hajj 2022 operation.
In an interview with the Newsmen on Tuesday Musa said that all necessary arrangements were in place to make this year’s Hajj a world- class experience.
The federal commissioner called on intending pilgrims to see the 2022 Hajj as an emergency programme because of the lack of Hajj operations in the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Musa said that NAHCON was not expecting challenges in the transportation of intending pilgrims from its customary Port Harcourt Airport because all arrangements were in place.
One of the five pillars of Islam central to Muslim belief, Hajj is the pilgrimage to Mecca that every Muslim must make at least once in their lifetime if they are able; it is the most spiritual event that a Muslim experiences, observing rituals in the most sacred places in the Islamic world.
