Written by Olarotimi Oshin on June 23, 2023
The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has said the airlift of Nigerian pilgrims to Saudi Arabia will end Saturday, June 24, 2023.
A statement issued by the commission’s Assistant Director, Public Affairs, Fatima Sanda Usara, on Thursday also said the commission had airlifted over seventy-one thousand pilgrims and recorded one hundred and seventy flights since the airlifting commenced twenty-seven days ago.
According to the statement, “The Aero Contractors Airline, Max Air and Air Peace have all concluded conveyance of their allocated pilgrims to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, while Azman has one more flight to conclude.
The commission therefore called on any eligible pilgrim with valid travel documents that had not been contacted for the journey to approach the nearest pilgrims’ welfare agency for confirmation and subsequent dispatch to the Kingdom for the 2023 Hajj exercise.
