Kebbi Government has inaugurated an 18- member committee to prepare ground for the inaugural flight of Nigerian Pilgrims to the 2024 Hajj in Saudi Arabia.

The National Hajj Commission (NAHCON) designated Sir Ahmadu Bello International Airport, Birnin Kebbi, for the commencement of the pilgrimage to the Holy Land scheduled for the 15th May, 2024.

Performing the ceremony at the Nasir Idris Hajj Camp, Birnin Kebbi on this Tuesday, the Chairman of the Committee, who is the Secretary to the State Government, (SSG) Alhaji Yakubu Bala-Tafidan thanked Gov. Nasir Idris for giving them the opportunity to serve fatherland and humanity.

Bala-Tafida, represented by a member of the Committee, member representing Danko-Wasagu East in the State House of Assembly, Alhaji Muhammad Garba- Bena, urged all the members to be steadfast in ensuring the success of the inaugural flight.

“The Federal Government has made Kebbi State a big platform for the Hajj exercise this year.

” We must join hands together to work in earnest to do our best to uphold the confidence reposed on us by federal authorities.

“Our publicity sub- committee should ensure proper coverage of the inaugural flight; we must be seen and heard throughout the nation.

” The chairman should arrange live coverage, while the security sub committee must ensure everything is well secured from beginning to end,” he said.

Bala-Tafida charged those handing protocol affairs to prepare to receive guests from all over the country, saying there is the possibility Mr President Bola Tinubu or the Vice President, Kashim Shatima or their representatives including NAHCON officials would be in the state to witness the departure of the pilgrims. 

Earlier, the Executive Chairman, Kebbi State Pilgrims Welfare Agency (PWA), Alhaji Faruq Aliyu-Enabo, thanked the governor for providing moral and material support to the committee for the success of the inaugural flight.
