Chairman of the Mu’assasa group (Ithraa Al Khair), Dr. Ahmad Sindhi, has described 2024 Hajj as the most successful in recent years.

He attributed this achievement to the collective efforts and dedication of all involved, acknowledging the commitments made by his company and the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) under the leadership of Malam Jalal Ahmad Arabi.

He spoke when the company hosted NAHCON to an end of Hajj dinner by Ithraa Al Khair Company of Mutawwifs, also known as Mu’assasa.

In a statement signed by the Assistant Director Public Affairs of the Commission, Fatima Sanda Usara, the event took place at the Crowne Plaza in Jeddah, over the weekend.

In attendance were Executive Secretaries and Chairmen of State Pilgrims Welfare Boards/Agencies/Commissions, Private Tour Operators, and other guests.

The event highlighted the successes and innovations brought up in this year’s pilgrimage.

“We made promises and challenged ourselves,” said Dr. Sindhi, “as a result of the dialogues, I have honor and satisfaction to stand before you, having dispensed our best effort to deliver on every bit of these promises.”

Sindhi disclosed that The Ithra al Khair company brought 60 chefs from Nigeria to cook specialized meals for the country’s pilgrims.

He described it as an honour when he went round the tents in Arafat, seeing pilgrims praying in their air-conditioned tents and unconcerned about food and water because they were in abundance.

Emphasizing the elevated standards set by Ithraa Al Khair, Dr Sindhi noted with pride that the unique tents in Arafat and exceptional services provided during the pilgrimage were widely appreciated by his competitors too, whilst drawing attention to the significant changes in Muzdalifa.

The Mu’assasa Chairman said his firm invested close to $200,000,000 to develop Mina tents.

The Chairman of the Mu’assasa group celebrated the NAHCON Chairman Malam Jalal Arabi and other prominent NAHCON staff for their dedication.

In appreciation Dr Sindhi presented gifts to NAHCON for the partnership. The company equally appreciated the Nigerian state delegations for their cooperation towards success of the exercise.

Chairman of NAHCON, Malam Jalal Ahmad Arabi, pronounced the 2024 Hajj as a successful accomplishment.

He said, evidently, that the Hajj was a success remains the majority opinion.

As quoted in the statement, he said, “Where there was substantial progress, we congratulate ourselves. If it was not uniform, we learn from it and leap further.

“Mina was a fantastic attempt, in some places, it was excellent”.

He confirmed that there were excess camp spaces but inability to channel the complains through the right channels prevented full utilization.

He advised stakeholders to put heads together proffering solutions to noticeable challenges. The helmsman of Nigerian Hajj industry noted that bickering and accusations are time consuming systems that may prove costly in a time sensitive assignment such as Hajj.
