Kano state Pilgrims Welfare Board will soon commence providing Umrah services.


The state commissioner of information Malam Muhammad Garba hinted that sweeping reform is underway at the Board following executive approval for the amendment of the edict establishing the board to streamline its activities.


Garba, who announced that a bill would be sent to the state House of Assembly to that effect, said the development followed the granting of license to the board by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) to carry out Umrah (Lesser Hajj) services along with Hajj operations.


The amendment, he added, was also informed by the recent establishment of the propagation, education and enlightenment department, coupled with the need to create that for legal services to ensure the smooth operation of the board.
