Hajj: Kaduna Registers 4,000 intending pilgrims, Says Registration Closes Today


Press release

The Kaduna State Pilgrims Welfare Agency (KSPWA) reminds all intending pilgrims that today, Monday, 12 February 2024, marks the final day for registration for the 2024 Hajj pilgrimage. This follows the extended deadline announced last week by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

Yunusa Mohammed Abdullahi, spokesperson for the KSPWA, emphasized that only those who registered and completed their Hajj fare payment by today will be eligible to perform the pilgrimage from Kaduna State. He urged all intending pilgrims who have not completed their registration or payment to do so immediately.

The KSPWA is committed to ensuring a smooth and successful Hajj experience for all pilgrims. New entrants are also welcome to register today, subject to availability of the Hajj seat, said the statement. 

More than 4,000 individuals have already expressed their interest in performing Hajj from Kaduna, and the KSPWA is committed to assisting all eligible applicants.

NAHCON has allocated 6,004 seats to Kaduna State out of the over 95,000 expected to perform Hajj from Nigeria this year. With limited seats available, KSPWA urges all interested individuals to register by the deadline to avoid disappointment.
