There Will Be No Uniform Fare For Intending Pilgrims In 2024 Hajj – NAHCON Announces

The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has announced that there will be no uniform fare for intending Muslim Pilgrims in the 2024 hajj operations in Saudi Arabia.
The chairman of the Commission, Malam Jalal Arabi, who dropped the hint after a series of meetings with relevant bodies, including the Saudi Foreign Minister, said that the fare for each state would depend on the cost of accommodation in the Holy land.
According to him, the cheaper a state’s cost of accommodation and feeding, the cheaper the state’s Hajj fare.
“States are to plan their individual menus which would be used during negotiations.”
Jalal Arabi made it clear that the team of NAHCON’s facilities’ inspectors will not compromise standards, even as he commended the maturity exhibited by the Private Tour Operators for their collaboration to move the operations to the next level.
He reminded them to commit their agreements on paper for future reference.
The NAHCON boss advised the Tour Operators to
explore liberalization of Mutawwif services in settling for those that would best serve their pilgrims.
He asked NAHCON staff to redouble efforts in working with updated guidelines.
A statement from the NAHCON spokesperson, Fatima Sanda Usara said that further preparatory engagements would continue, with working visit to Mutawwif company, known as Mu’assasa, GACA, Car Syndicate for Pilgrims’ transportation, Adillah in Madina among others. She said that the Chairman and other members are expected to strike good bargains on behalf of Nigerian pilgrims that would reduce cost of the 2024 Hajj fare
“NAHCON will continue to update its several stakeholders on its activities for transparency and inclusivity.
