2024 hajj: Plateau asks intending pilgrims to pay N4.5m deposit

by admin


The Plateau State Pilgrims Welfare Board has urged those interested in participating in the 2024 Hajj to deposit N4.5m as soon as possible due to time constraints.


In a statement board’s Information Officer, Namu Sanusi, he stated that the time constraint has to do with the approach of final date of funds remittance into the coffers of Saudi Arabian account.


Namu said the Executive Secretary of the board, Hon. Daiyabu Dauda made this known during a chat with the Information Unit of the Board.


“Pilgrims are enjoined to make their deposit of N4.5m in time to enable the Board complete registration and remittance of hajj fare to NAHCON in Abuja.”


Hon. Dauda said this became necessary in tandem to the dollar rate that will determine the final cost of the hajj fare computation.


He said the general public, especially Intending Pilgrims are warned and should not hold the board responsible if after paying a lower amount of deposit, fail to secure a slot for 2024.


He stated that the intending pilgrims would be treated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.


“In addition, the 2023 Intending Pilgrims who could not access their Zamzam water during the first distributions should please come to the Board with their E-Passport for onward collection. No collection on proxy, please.”
