Chairman of the National hajj Commission of Federal Republic of Nigeria, NAHCON, and Abdullahi Mukhtar has attributed the decrease within the range of this year’s intending pilgrims to the first closure of registration portal by the Saudi Arabia authorities before expected.

DAILY NIGERIAN reports that over seventy, 000 Nigerian pilgrims performed the hajj rites in 2017, however the amount has reduced this year.

Speaking with BBC Hausa Service and monitored by our journalist in Kano on Saturday, Mr. Mukhtar disclosed that the Saudi authorities had closed the gathering of the hajj fares on Gregorian calendar month July twenty three, three weeks before the same old deadline.

“This won't be unconnected with the very fact that the majority of those intending pilgrims are small-scale traders and farmers.

“They wish to continue finance their cash to induce a lot of profit till at the limit of the closure of the payment. The farmers additionally wait till they end mercantilism their grains, then they pay their fares,” he said.

The NAHCON Boss noted that the new system would be a lesson to Nigerian intending pilgrims to be ready for next year’s hajj.
