The attention of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria has been drawn to the publication on some social media platforms and some online platforms that the Saudi Arabian authorities are threatening to block Nigerian pilgrims from attending the 2018 Hajj.
We read with dismay the story and we want to allay the fear of Nigerians especially the intending pilgrims that no such decision has been taken nor there was any plan of such.
We therefore assure Nigerians and intending Pilgrims of our commitment to the continuous improvement of services to the Nigerian Pilgrims.
