At the ceremony in Ilorin, the NAHCON chairman, Alhaji Zikrullah Hassan, expressed the commission’s determination to support poor Muslims to perform hajj the fifth pillar of Islam.

Hassan, represented by the Federal Commissioner (North Central Zone) of the NAHCON, Hajiya Halimah Jibril, explained that the scheme was designed to make hajj pilgrimage easy and affordable for subscribers.

He noted that the scheme, which is being run in collaboration with Jaiz Bank Plc, would avail Muslims the opportunity of saving gradually at their convenience over a period of time to facilitate their performance of hajj.
