A female legislator from Adamawa State, Aishatu Dahiru Binani, has donated 100 Riyals to each pilgrim from the state as welfare.
Alhaji Isa Bagalchi, who presented the money on behalf of the lawmaker, is quoted as having said that the donation was to support the pilgrims on their feeding. Bagalchi said the lawmaker would not relent in taking steps necessary to ensure the well-being of the pilgrims.
Saudi officials at the airport said they were prepared for the huge traffic of passengers after Hajj. They however complained that the huge luggage carried out by pilgrims was complicating the situation.
“We have transferred about 18 flights to the Hajj terminal to reduce congestion at the southern terminal,” an official said.
