Lagos begins lectures for intending 2022 pilgrims
The Lagos State Government has urged intending pilgrims for the 2022 holy pilgrimage to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through the State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board to attend weekend lectures in their respective councils.
The lectures, which commenced on Saturday, May 21, 2022 in all the designated councils are designed to keep the pilgrims abreast of the ethics and activities of hajj exercise both in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia.
The state’s Commissioner for Home Affairs, Anofiu Olanrewaju Elegushi, in a statement signed by the Board Secretary, Imam Hakeem Kosoko, said the weekend lectures would run simultaneously for at least three weeks.
Elegushi further disclosed that the lectures would afford the pilgrims the opportunity to learn from the Ulamah (Islamic scholars) and also expose them to facts about some historical sites in the Holy land.
