Barrister Abdullahi Mukhtar, Chairman of NAHCON, awarded the pass mark while on visitation of states’ pilgrim tents on Tuesday night in Muna. He also commended the level of environmental cleanliness of Kaduna pilgrims’ tents and expressed hope that “the state will continue to maintain high sense of discipline that it is known for.”
