NAHCON unveils 2024 Hajj fare

National Hajj Commission, NAHCON, has disclosed the final fare for this year, 2024.

Chairman of the Commission, Malam Jalal Arabi stated that pilgrims intending to travel from Nigeria’s Southern centre are required to pay N4,899,000 as Hajj fare, while those from the Northern centre will pay N4,699,000.

However, intending pilgrims from Yola and Maiduguri centre will pay N4,679,000.

Deputy Director, Public Affairs, Fatima Sanda Usara, recalled that the Chairman of NAHCON had initially aimed to maintain the 2024 Hajj fare at N4.5 million.

“The prospects had remained high until the well-known Naira crash that occurred mid-week.

“Regrettably, the recent instability in the Dollar exchange rate compelled a necessary adjustment despite commendable efforts by NAHCON Chairman, Jalal Ahmad Arabi to maintain the cost of the year’s Hajj at the said rate,” she said.

NAHCON assured the public of its commitment to ensuring a successful Hajj pilgrimage for all participating pilgrims despite the challenges posed by foreign exchange factors.
