Federal Govt extends 2024 Hajj registration till Jan. 31


The Federal Government has okayed an extension of the deadline for the 2024 hajj registration by intending pilgrims.


The Assistant Director, Public Affairs, National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, Mrs Fatima Usara, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.


She said the extension was in response to the heartfelt concerns raised by religious clerics, State Pilgrims’ Welfare Boards, agencies, commissions, governors and other stakeholders regarding the closure of 2024 Hajj registration.


“The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) is pleased to announce Federal Government’s approval for an extension of the deadline.


“The new date is set for Jan. 31, providing an additional opportunity for individuals to participate in this sacred pilgrimage.


“The overwhelming request for extension from various religious communities underscores the significance of ensuring accessibility to a broader spectrum of the faithful eager to embark on the spiritual journey of Hajj,” she added.
