The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Muhammad Musa Bello, has called for synergy between the National Hajj Commission (Nahcon) and the Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Boards of states for successful Hajj operations.
Bello made the call when he received a delegation of the commission’s management led by its Chairman and CEO, Alhaji Zikrullah Kunle Hassan, which was on a courtesy visit to his office.
Bello said, “One point I should emphasise here is that it is very important that you cooperate, communicate and relate very well with the state pilgrims welfare boards because they have the pilgrims and are the ones that register them. So, it’s very important that as you operate, you work very closely with them.”
The minister commended the management of the commission for the successful take off of the Hajj Savings Scheme, which he said, “Is the way to go because of all its numerous advantages and multiplier benefits to communities, especially in the rural areas.”
Alhaji Hassan who spoke earlier, said the visit was to introduce the new executives of the commission to the minister, as well as tap from his wealth of experience considering that he was once the chairman of the commission.
