The Kano State Pilgrims Welfare Board (KSPWB) has given intending pilgrims a 7-day ultimatum to complete payment.

Executive secretary of the board, Alh. Mohammad Abba Danbatta, gave the ultimatum while briefing journalists on preparations for the 2022 hajj, on Thursday.

Danbatta also reminded those who are above the age limit of 65 years that they are barred from attending this year’s Hajj.

The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) recently pegged the sum of N2.5 million as tentative fare for the 2022 exercise pending when the compilation of final fare for each state is released.

“The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has also given the sum of N2.5 million as tentative fare for the 2022 exercise as a result of rising dollar prices and increased tax revenue from Saudi Arabia and the airline.”

“The board has at least 2,500 people who have contributed a portion of the Hajj funds and they would give priority to those who had initially deposited their money to the board”, he said
