Governor appoints Amirul-Hajj
A statement by El-Rufai’s media aide, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, at the weekend in Kaduna explained that government’s decision to stop sponsoring people for pilgrimages has saved the state more than N221.8 million.
The statement however said the government would send 116 officials and guides that would ensure smooth Hajj operations for the 5,682 pilgrims from the state.
“The government will discharge its obligation to the pilgrims and send a delegation of guides, preachers, medical personnel, media professionals and pilgrim officers.
“The official delegation will be led by the Emir of Birnin-Gwari, Alhaji Zubairu Jibril, who is the 2015 Amirul-Hajj.
