The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has urged States Pilgrims Welfare Agencies, Boards and Commissions across the country to commence the registration of intending pilgrims for 2021 hajj pilgrimage.
This was contained in a statement by the Commissioner in charge of Operations, Alhaji Abdullahi Magaji Hardaway, on Thursday in Abuja.
Magaji who said the final decision shall be based on the appropriate guidelines to be issued by Saudi Arabia Authorities in that respect, advised the States Pilgrims Welfare Boards to strictly adhere to the guidelines earlier issued to them in the course of the registration exercise.
He also urged the States Pilgrims Welfare Boards to take into cognizance the principle of first come first serve to give those intending pilgrims who earlier paid last year and decided to roll-over to 2021, a priority over those who are paying this year.
The statement informed that NAHCON’s e-portal (www.nigeriahajjcom.gov.ng) for pilgrims’ registration will be opened to all intending pilgrims.
