National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), on Tuesday, completed the movement of Nigerian pilgrims expected to participate in the 2019 hajj in Saudi Arabia.

In a statement released on Tuesday by Fatima Usara, the Head, Public Affairs Division of NAHCON, shortly after the last flight to Mecca disclosed that Nigeria has completed the transportation arrangements of its pilgrims to the Holy land.

“The last Flynas aircraft that departed Abuja this morning transported 301 pilgrims left behind from various states of the federation.

“Consequently, NAHCON officials are expected to depart the country for Saudi Arabia having certified that no pilgrim is left behind.

“The management and staff of NAHCON commend all 2019 air carriers for joining hands and working round the clock to beat the deadline despite some hurdles encountered during the airlift,” she said.
