Mohammed also revealed that his administration would in 2020 build a brand new N500 million Hajj Camp to alleviate the problems pilgrims often faced; and ensure efficiency in hajj management.
He said that his administration would also reconstitute both Muslim and Christian Pilgrims’ Boards and involve religious bodies in decision-making for all-inclusive operations of religious programmes in the state.
