Kebbi Approves N1m Subsidy For Each Intending Pilgrim

Kebbi State government has approved N1million subsidy for each of its 3,344 intending pilgrims for this year’s hajj.

The state commissioner for information and culture, Hon Yakubu Ahmed Birnin Kebbi, disclosed this yesterday in Birnin Kebbi when he briefed newsmen on the outcome of an emergency State Executive Council (SEC) meeting.

He said the gesture was sequel to the hiking of the 2024 Hajj fares by N1.9 million by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

He added, “So, N1million will be paid for each of the intending pilgrims immediately.”

All the intending pilgrims who had earlier completed the payment of their fares will also be given N1 million.
