Jigawa State Governor, Umar Namadi, has announced a significant subsidy of N1 million for each prospective pilgrim from the state, in response to the recent hike in Hajj fares by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

Alhaji Ahmed Umar Labbo, Director-General of the Jigawa Pilgrims Welfare Board, stated this in Dutse, the state capital.

Labbo emphasized the necessity of this subsidy, especially for intending pilgrims who had already made full payments but were affected by the sudden increase in Hajj fares.

He highlighted the financial strain posed by the fare hike and urged all prospective pilgrims from Jigawa State to promptly remit the remaining balance, amounting to over nine hundred and eighteen thousand naira, to the board.

The subsidy is specifically designated for those who have already made partial payments to the board, ensuring that they receive some relief from the increased costs associated with the pilgrimage.


Governor Namadi’s initiative aims to alleviate the financial burden on pilgrims and facilitate their journey to fulfill their religious obligations.
