Hajj: Jang To Sponsor 450 Pilgrims

Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State is sponsoring  450 pilgrims to this year’s Hajj, the state’s Executive Secretary of the Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board has said.

Alhaji Salisu Musa, who addressed newsmen shortly after receiving an award from the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) at his office, said the governor has confirmed his intention to sponsor the said number of pilgrims so that they can also pray for peace in the state and the country at large.

He added that Governor Jang had since approved the payment of additional money to secure a befitting accommodation for all pilgrims from state in Makkah. “The accommodation secured will enable all the state contingent to stay in one single house, and  apart from that, all official cars of the state in Makkah have been serviced,” he said.
