Kaduna State Pilgrims Welfare Board

The Kaduna State Pilgrims Welfare Board Acting Chairperson, Hajiya Hannatu Zailani, said the board targets all the 3,945 intending pilgrims for COVID-19 vaccine this year.

According to her, the vaccine is one of the criteria that must be fulfilled before an intending pilgrim will be allowed to travel for this year’s hajj based on the directives by National Hajj Commission.

She spoke with Daily Trust shortly after the flag-off of the vaccination exercise of the intending pilgrims at Kaduna North Local Government Area of the state.
