Lagos State Pleads With Pilgrims To Postpone Hajj Till 2021.

Intending pilgrims for hajj 2020 have been urged by the Lagos State Government to postpone Hajj till 2021.

The Lagos state Govt ,the intending pilgrims, Islamic scholars and other stakeholders reached this conclusion during a one-day programme at the Lagos State Secretariat, Alausa ikeja.

Prince Aofiu greeted saudi authority for taking such a bold and difficult decision to manage the spread of the virus.

He went on further to say that every pilgrim who has already paid the fare would be refunded as the government has the interest of its people at heart. Also he asked that those who haven’t completed their payment should do so to secure their place in the record of the Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board.

Narrating the efforts already put in place by the state government before the pandemic struck, Elegushi said that he led some officials to Saudi Arabia to secure a befitting accommodation for the pilgrims.

The decision was in reaction to the cancellation of pilgrims outside Saudi Arabia for this year’s hajj.
