Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, who said this while receiving the 2014Hajj report, noted that some airlines assigned to the state last year by the National Hajj Commission, were found to be inefficient and frequently violated flight schedules.
He said the state government would take a position on whether or not to continue working with such airlines.
Earlier the 2014 Amirul Hajj, Mohammed Rabi’u Bako, said in his report that Kabo Air Limited which airlifted pilgrims from the state to Saudi Arabia, did not perform well. He also said government needed to install closed circuit television cameras at the Mando Hajj Camp to boost security.  He called for the early commencement of Hajj saving scheme and sale of seats. He said 5,760 pilgrims were registered last year and that out people died during the exercise.
 Governor Yero, who was reacting to a rumour, said it was untrue that he sold some Hajj seats to raise funds for political campaigns.
“It is not true that I sold seats to raise money for campaigns. It is not possible. People peddling the rumour are ignorant; they don’t know anything about Hajj operations,” he said. The governor also confirmed the appointment of Kabir Kassim as Executive Secretary of the Muslims Pilgrims Board. Kassim has served as the Board’s overseer for two years.
