The executive secretary, Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam, has disclosed that the Commission would begin its pilgrimage exercise to Jordan in July, this year.

A press statement issued by the Commission’s media and public relations unit Thursday evening indicated that Rev. Pam made the disclosure while playing host to the executive members of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Kaduna state Council, at the NCPC corporate headquarters, Abuja.

He said arrangements were being put in place to “ensure a successful pilgrimage outing to Jordan in July 2021,” adding that every approval needed to commence the pilgrimage exercise to Jordan had been received by the Commission.

He said there was a need for the government, religious leaders, traditional leaders and the media practitioners to work in synergy to handle the crises in the country, adding that “the media is the medium that will sell the story in the right perspective that will bring about peace.”

Pam urged the NUJ to be objective in their reportage in addition to focusing on the strength of the country.

“Let us focus and magnify the good deeds of our people and sell it to the outside world. If we celebrate those who are doing a good job in this country, others will emulate their good deeds,” he said.

He said the Commission would continue to advocate for peace and national development, stressing that “we will join hands together to engage the principal actors who have been influenced negatively and stop them from displaying their act of destruction.”

Speaking earlier, the chairman of the Council, Comrade Adamu Yusuf, commended the NCPC boss for his “visionary leadership style which is anchored on unity and oneness of Nigeria.”

He called on political appointees and heads of government agencies to emulate the leadership style of the NCPC boss in order to get the right things done.
