We’re yet to commence hajj savings scheme — NAHCON

THE National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) is yet to commence a hajj savings scheme, contrary to a media report, the commission’s spokesperson, Hajiya Fatima Sanda Usara, has said.

She told reporters on Wednesday that she had been misquoted in a report that said that the commission would kick-start the scheme for the next year’s hajj exercise.

“I actually spoke with reporters on hajj savings scheme but I didn’t specify the date or year of commencement as published by the news distribution medium,” she said.
