Bauchi Hajj Camp Unbeatable Among Others – HAHCON Boss


The chairman of National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) Alhaji Jalal Ahmad Arabi has described Bauchi ultra-modern Sultan Saad Abubakar Hajj Camp constructed by the State Government led by Governor Bala Mohammed as unbeatable among other camps across the Nigerian federation.

Arabi was speaking when he paid an unscheduled visit to the Sultan Sa’ad Abubakar Ultra Modern Hajji Transit Camp in Bauchi yesterday in order to see for himself the nature of the edifice. 

He acknowledged the contribution of Governor Bala Abdulkadir Muhammad towards the well being of intending pilgrims, also describing it as one of the best in the country. 

On the 2024 hajj exercise, the
NAHCON boss also called on states pilgrims welfare board whose pilgrims are yet to be flown to Saudi Arabia for this year’s pilgrimage to ensure speedy bringing them out to the designated airports for their journey to the Holy Land.

The Chief Executive Officer of NAHCON who made the plea said, “We wish the states that are remaining now will bring out their pilgrims in time, so that there is no waiting time for the aircrafts on the tarmac waiting for the pilgrims to come.” 

Jalal Arabi noted that Governor Bala Abdulkadir is a patriotic human being, and prayed Almighty Allah to reward him abundantly for the building of a befitting Hajj pilgrims transit camp for the state.

“I am not surprised to say that this is what I call an elder brother. I know his capacity, I know his capability, but most importantly I know his patriotism. I know how he takes things, just as he respects other beliefs, but seeing this edifice confirms what I have for him, so I don’t take anything less from him than near perfection”, he said.

Arabi also congratulated the  Bauchi State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board for timely and successful airlift of all its  2024 intending pilgrims to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia within a very short period without any hitches.

Executive Secretary Bauchi State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, Imam Abdurrahman Ibrahim Idris has earlier expressed his happiness for the visit, saying the visit is an honour to Bauchi State.

On the secret behind the successful airlift of Bauchi pilgrims to Saudi Arabia, Imam Abdurrahman Ibrahim Idris attributed it to early preparation and securing visa on time.
