The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has said that there would not be extension of the March 2018 payment deadlines for intending pilgrims for next year’s hajj exercise.

The Chairman of the commission Abdullahi Mukhtar Muhammad said this yesterday in Abuja during a meeting with the new leadership of the Association of Hajj and Ummrah Operators in Nigeria (AHOUN).

According to him the calendar year for the 2018 hajj would be strictly followed to allow for proper planning especially as it relates to the intending pilgrims’ welfare and comfort in Saudi Arabia.

He said that the Saudi Arabia Government would in May 2018 formally close registration portal and that since Islam is a religion that follows proper planning, the pilgrims should attach more importance to religious travelling the way they plan for leisure or vocational journeys.
