According to the Ag. C.G Jere, the visit was to reassure the NAHCON Chairman of the NIS’ commitment to assisting the Commission in conducting a successful Hajj operation this year in fulfilment of his earlier promise to the Commission’s Chairman.

Towards this end, the Ag C.G disclosed that the immigration service had already deployed its officers to all Hajj departure centres with an instruction to coordinate a smooth immigration clearance for the pilgrims.

He also reassured Alhaji Zikrullah Kunle Hassan that instruction has been given to passport offices nationwide to facilitate the issuance of passports to intending pilgrims to avoid disenfranchising any qualified person from travelling for the pilgrimage.

Alhaji Hassan thanked the immigration service helm man for the honour and expressed relief and confidence in the Acting C.G’s competence.

He commended Alhaji Idris Jere’s effort as head of a sister agency working with NAHCON in ensuring that all qualified pilgrims travel for the Hajj with ease.

Hassan assured the Ag. C.G that NAHCON would do everything necessary to solidify the cordial relationship between the two agencies.
