Ogun set for 2017 Hajj screening

The Senate has asked the Presidency to slash the 2017 Hajj fare payable by Nigeria’s intending pilgrims because of economic recession.

The senators after a debate following a motion by Senator Ibrahim Danbaba and 30 others want the Hajj fare be reduced from N1.5 million to N800,000.

Danbaba in the motion said the Hajj fare charged by approved private Hajj pilgrim operators is about N300,000 cheaper than the official Hajj fare announced by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria.

After the debate, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki asked the foreign affairs committee to investigate the N1.5 million fare and report back to the Senate.
