Gov. Sule ensured Nasarawa pilgrims were accommodated close to Holy Mosque – Al-Makura

Nasarawa State Pilgrims Welfare Board says the board was able to secure an accommodation close to the Masjid Al-Haram for its pilgrims in Makkah thanks to Gov. Abdullahi Sule.

The Executive Secretary, Alhaji Idris Al-Makura, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Sunday in Makkah, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

VMT NEWS reports that it is the responsibility of state pilgrims boards to secure decent accommodations for their pilgrims in Makkah based on the arrangements with the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

Al-Makura said the board, aside from accommodating its pilgrims in a five-star hotel, also engaged the services of good caterers to provide food to its contingent.

“Nasarawa State is blessed now because of the governor we have in power in the person of Abdullahi Sule.

“I am not bragging, but you can go to the Nasarawa State pilgrims accommodation in Makkah to confirm by yourself.

“It is only Nasarawa State pilgrims that were accommodated so close to the Masjid Al-Haram – less than one kilometre to the Haram.

“There is no other state in Nigeria that is closer to the holy mosque than Nasarawa pilgrims and this was achieved because of the commitment of our governor. We will continue to put him in prayers.”

The executive secretary called on all Nasarawa pilgrims to reciprocate the gesture of the governor by exhibiting good conduct throughout the hajj period from Mina, Arafat, Muzdalifah till they return to Nigeria.

“Myself and the management staff of the board held a meeting with all the pilgrims and admonished them to continue to protect the image of Nigeria not just Nasarawa State.

“They should also exhibit a good conduct; they should stay where they ask them to stay in Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah and avoid going to where they are cautioned not to go.”
