Don’t Take Prohibited Items To Saudi Arabia: NAHCON Warns Intending Pilgrims

National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, has warned the 2024 Hajj Pilgrims against carrying any prohibited items into Saudi Arabia.

Executive Chairman of NAHCON, Jalal Arabi, gave the warning, on Wednesday, at the inauguration of the 2024 National Hajj operations, at the Sir Ahmadu Bello International Airport, Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State, North West Nigeria.

Arabi also advised the pilgrims to use the special privilege they have to serve Allah and avoid being distracted.

“I implore you all to avoid any conduct that would dent your image and the image of our dear country.

“Remember the lessons you learnt while preparing for this exercise and know that the time has come to implement them,” he said.

“Abide strictly by all health regulations while in the Kingdom, to avoid falling ill.

“NAHCON has made the necessary arrangements for pilgrims’ comfort,” he said.

Arabi also disclosed that, NAHCON management, after consultation with members of the State Pilgrims’ Welfare Boards, introduced certain measures to reduce the high Hajj expenses.

“We reduced the length of stay in Madinah from eight days to four days and charged a fee commensurate with the four days.

“In doing this, we cut down the Madinah accommodation fees significantly, after bargaining for the same luxurious hotels,” he added.
