Acting chairman of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), Alhaji Jalal Ahmad Arabi, has described his visits to notable Islamic leaders and clerics as part of the consultative drive toward strengthening the commission for a successful 2024 Hajj operations.
Arabi in a press statement signed by deputy director of information and publication of NAHCON, Alhaji Mousa Ubandawaki, said the success of Hajj is a collective responsibility and therefore every stakeholder in the Hajj industry needs to be carried along to work together as a team in achieving the success.
He said the role of Islamic leaders cannot be emphasized, saying they play a very significant and critical role in the success or otherwise of Hajj in the country.
The NAHCON boss, therefore, solicited for their support and cooperation in realising the objective of the commission for Nigerian pilgrims. “Success can only be achieved through consultations and team work,” he said.
Upon his recent assumption of office as NAHCON chairman, Arabi promised to engage and consult stakeholders in the industry in achieving success.
As part of the consultation, he had visited the spiritual leaders of the Qadriyyah sect, Maulana Sheikh Qaribullahi Nasiru Kabara in Kano, Maulana Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi, the spiritual leader of Tijaniyya group, the leader of JIBWIS, Dr Abdullahi Bala Lau and Sheikh Muhammadu Sani Yahaya Jingir (JIBWIS) in Abuja and headquarters in Jos respectively.
