The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has fixed December 27 as the deadline for registration of those that are interested in performing this year’s Hajj with the Board.
The Director, FCTA Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, Malam Abubakar Adamu Evuti, stated this when he paid a courtesy visit to the chairman FCT council of Chiefs and Ona of Abaji on a sensitisation tour of the traditional institutions and other stakeholders on the deadline for the registration of intending pilgrims for next hajj exercise.
Evuti disclosed that the Board had embarked on the sensitisation of stakeholders to educate them with the new policies introduced by the Saudi Arabian Government and relevant agencies in respect of the 2024 Hajj exercise.
The director disclosed that prospective intending pilgrims are to deposit a bank draft of minimum of N4,500,000.00 only to book their seat for the exercise across the six area councils and the head office of the Board located at the Central Business District, Abuja.
He also stated that the Board has since commenced the registration of prospective pilgrims and requested that residents of the territory who have the intention of performing hajj through the board should ensure early deposit of the minimum amount before the deadline.
Earlier, the Chairman FCT Council of Chiefs and Ona of Abaji, Alhaji Adamu Baba Yunusa, pledged to support the FCT Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board in sensitising intending pilgrims for early registration for next year’s hajj.
