Savings for Hajj like commencing the journey — Jaiz MD

The Managing Director, Jaiz Bank Plc, Hassan Usman has said that commencing savings for Hajj is like starting the journey to the Holy Land for pilgrimage.

Speaking on Monday at the launch of the Hajj Savings Scheme in Lagos, Usman said the National Hajj Savings Scheme is a significant milestone for all stakeholders in the hajj ecosystem in Nigeria. From planning, funding to actual operations, the scheme has the potential to positively affect every act and actor in the process.

“With such a scheme in place, intending pilgrims that do not have the wherewithal can gradually plan and actualize their dream without stress by saving gradually. Even those who may not  live to witness the completion of  their savings may   by Allah’s infinite mercy receive the reward for Hajj because they are pilgrims by intention (niyyat) and action (amal) together.”

“On our part as a Bank, we are committed to this journey and we are ready to support it with best-in-class technology infrastructure as well as safe investment management practice,” the MD said.

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu urged the Muslims in the state to embrace the scheme in order to benefit in all forms.

Speaking through his Deputy, Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat, the governor who described the scheme as a milestone, said his government will ensure its success at all levels.

Chairman/CEO of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), Bar Zikirullah Kunle Hassan said besides transforming the Hajj operations, it will also help reduce the cost of Hajj in the country.
