Muslim Hajj Commission Introduces Cash Awards For Best Air Carriers On Hajj Operations

Abdullahi Mukhtar

Chairman of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), Alhaji Abdullahi Muktar has announced the introduction of cash awards to the best air carriers in the hajj operations from this year. The announcement was made at the signing of an agreement between the air carriers and the Commission yesterday.

He advised the air carriers to go into competition by working in the best interest of the pilgrims even as he made it known to them that the Commission is going to have a monitoring team to evaluate performances.

“We are also going to give out prices to the best performed air carriers at the end of the Hajj exercise.’’

Muktar, who signed the agreement on behalf of the Commission in Abuja, advised the selected air carriers to put the interest of the pilgrims above personal and financial aspects of the agreement for successful and fruitful exercise.

He advised them not to compromise standards and quick service delivery like other countries, being the ultimate when it comes to Hajj operations.

This, he said, would move Hajj operations forward “because every year the Saudi Authority always expect the best services, especially in the area of airlift of pilgrims.

“The agreement should not be between the air carriers and the Commission alone, but the target should be the pilgrims, especially their welfare. The agreement is just like taking an oath between the Commission and Allah, the creator.”

Muktar advised them to have the fear of Almighty Allah in whatever they do, as He was always watching us.

He stressed the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari was not only concerned and passionate about Hajj but would do everything possible to put the country at par with international best practice.

He promised to work with the State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Boards, especially in the area of visa in order to have a hitch-free Hajj.

The selected carriers are; Top Brass Aviation, MedView Air , Kabo Air, Fly-Nass Air, Skypower Air, among others.

In his remarks, Alhaji Nura Harazimi, the Executive Director, Top Brass Aviation, who spoke on behalf of others, expressed gratitude to the Commission for the confidence reposed in them.

He promised that they would give their best, particularly in the area of service delivery to the pilgrims.

“We will work as partners in progress to give this year’s Hajj a befitting success. We are also going to comply strictly with the rules and regulations guiding Hajj operations.” [myad]
