Kaduna State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board will commence the registration of intending pilgrims for this year’s pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in all the 23 Local Government Areas of the state on Tuesday, 3rd January 2017.

In a statement issued on Sunday in Kaduna, by the Public Relations Officer of the Board, Yunusa Muhammad Abdullahi, said the Board has advised intending pilgrims to present themselves physically during the exercise because registration by proxy will not be allowed.

The statement quoted the Overseer of the Board, Imam Hussaini Sulaiman Tsoho Ikara, as warning that intending female pilgrims would only be registered when they come along with male guardians (Mahram) in line with Saudi Arabian government’s regulations.

Mr. Hussaini who addressed committees set up for the registration of the intending pilgrims at the premises of the Pilgrims’ board, warned them to adhere strictly to the registration guidelines.

The statement said that all intending pilgrims must have guarantor before being registered, in order to avoid pilgrims absconding in the Holy Land, adding that a guarantors should be a Jumuat, Mosque Imam, a District Head or a Civil Servant not below grade level 12.

According to the guidelines, new pilgrims will be given priority during the registration exercise. The statement warned that pregnant women and old people with nobody to accompany them will not be registered.

The statement said that intending pilgrims are to pay a minimum of N800, 000 or a maximum of N1.2 million as deposits in a designated bank account, pending the announcement of hajj fares by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).
