The Chairman , Kogi State Hajj Commission (KSHC), Sheikh Luqman Imam Abdullahi has assured that he would not renege in his effort to continually improve in the proper management of general matters pertaining to 2019 Hajj preparations.
Sheik Abdullahi who stated this in Lokoja on Sunday while commenting on the recommendation he received from the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer and management of National Hajj Commission of Nigeria over his performance and renewal of KSHC license, said decentralisation of the pilgrims’ screening as well as medical screening across the three senatorial districts of the state was aimed at ensuring that all intending pilgrims attended the exercise.
He stated that the commission would intensify effort in pilgrims’ enlightenment on electronic and print media to make the 2019 a huge success.
“We are not surprised by the commendation of National Hajj Commission because we really prepared adequately for the 2018 hajj operation which was why our pilgrims were airlifted before any other state and we will definitely repeat the same feat this year.
“We thank NAHCON for the commendation and I am assuring them that this will spur us to put more effort on issues that concern hajj operation in the state,” Sheik Abdullahi.
NAHCON had during 2018 Hajj commended the KSHC for its timely preparations that ultimately saw its pilgrims being first to be airlifted into and from Saudi Arabia.
