Kaduna State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board has released the 2016 Hajj fare for intending pilgrims to Saudi Arabia.

This is contained in a statement signed by its Public Relations Officer, Yunusa Muhammad Abdullahi, and issued on Wednesday in Kaduna.

According to the statement, the State Government has approved N1,019,350.00 as minimum fare with 750 US dollars as Basic Travelling Allowance (BTA) and N1,068,600.00 as medium fare with 1,000 US dollars BTA.

“All prospective pilgrims from the state have already made deposits of minimum of N800,000.00, said the statement,” the statement said.

The statement urged the intending pilgrims to hasten settlement of their remaining balance in good time to enable the board pay the NAHCON on schedule.

The Overseer of the Board, Imam Hussain Sulaiman Tsoho, assured of the Board’s commitment towards providing first class services to the intending pilgrims in order to attain an acceptable hajj by all the pilgrims from the state.

He commended the state government for providing all the necessary support to the board in ensuring the success of the hajj.

“All the intending pilgrims are expected to complete payment in their respective registration centres on or before June 20, 2016 as this would enable the board complete necessary arrangements in collaboration with National Hajj Commission of Nigeria,” the statement said.

Imam Hussain explained that defaulters risk forfeiting their chance to make the trip as NAHCON has also fixed deadline for remittance of the fare.
