Hajj team warns pilgrims against unlawful acts
The Grand Khadi, who made the warning while speaking at the closing ceremony of the induction course for the intending pilgrims towards a successful hajj at the weekend in Gombe, urged them to be prayerful for the state and the country, especially with the current security situation in the North-East.
The team further called on the pilgrims to assist one another, especially the elderly ones among them, due to their condition.
Meanwhile, the Executive Secretary of the state Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board (MPWB), Alhaji Usman Gurama, solicited more co-operation and support from the pilgrims towards a hitch-free hajj exercise.
He said their co-operation during the induction course was commendable hence the need for them to continue their co-operation throughout the exercise while in Nigeria and in the Holy Land.
According to him, they have achieved 95 per cent level of preparations in their effort toward a successful hajj, saying: “We have procured visa for 1, 910 people out of 1, 941 we had, so everything is now in order.”
