Kogi Government to refund excess money paid by intending pilgrims

 

The Kogi State Hajj Commission says it has concluded arrangements to refund excess payments made by intending pilgrims as a result of the reduction in Hajj fare announced by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON.

 

According to the Commission, the affected pilgrims would be contacted, through telephone calls once their cheques are ready, saying that there is no cause for alarm.

 

Our Kogi State Correspondent reports that a statement signed by the commission's Public Relations Officer, explained that all necessary arrangements for a hitch free 2019 Hajj Operation was in top gear, adding that 70% of the Visa for pilgrims have been processed.

 

He maintained that with the completion of registration, enlightenment campaign, medical screening and the distribution of traveling items to intending pilgrims, all is now set for the 2019 Hajj exercise, pending NAHCON’s announcement of date for the airlift of pilgrims from the state.

 

According to the Commission, intending pilgrims with unmanageable health challenges and pregnant women, have been denied issuance of traveling materials, suggesting that such persons may not be allowed to embark on the journey.

 

The commission noted that those who missed the first medical screening and inoculation, now have an opportunity to do so on 1st July, 2019 by 9.00am, stressing that there would be no further extension.
