The Gono of Kuje, who addressed members of the management of FCT Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board when they visited him in his palace, directed district and village heads to sensitize their subjects on the need to book for next year’s Hajj before the deadline.
The traditional ruler stressed the need for the intending Pilgrims to avoid rushing.
He explained the importance of Hajj as one of the five pillars of Islam and encourage his subjects to utilize the opportunity to get closer to the creator.
