Kebbi State Government has inaugurated an 18- member committee to prepare grounds for the 2024 inaugural flight of Nigerian pilgrims to Hajj in Saudi Arabia slated for the 15 of this month.

Performing the ceremony at the Nasir Idris Hajj Camp, Birnin Kebbi on Tuesday, the Chairman of the Committee, who is the Secretary to the State Government, Yakubu Bala Tafidan thanked Governor Nasir Idris for giving them the opportunity to serve fatherland and humanity.

Tafida, represented by a member of the Committee, member representing Danko-Wasagu East in the State House of Assembly, Muhammad Garba Bena, urged all the members to be steadfast in ensuring the success of the inaugural flight.

“The Federal Government, through the National Hajj Commission, had made Kebbi State a big platform for the Hajj exercise this year. We must therefore join hands together to work in earnest to do our best to uphold the confidence reposed in us by the federal authorities,” he stressed.

The Chairman further stated that “Our publicity sub- committee should ensure proper coverage of the inaugural flight; we must be seen and heard throughout the nation by putting in place sustainable channel of reportage throughout the inaugural session.”

The SSG charged those handing protocol affairs to prepare to receive guests from all over the country, as the state was expecting Mr President, Bola Tinubu or the Vice President, Kashim Shettima or their representatives besides NAHCON officials who must be in the state to participate and witness the departure of the pilgrims.
