2023: Hajj Commission Slams Nigerian Politicians For Displaying Posters In Makkah

The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, has condemned the trend where Nigerian politicians display posters of their candidates for the forthcoming presidential election in the grand mosque in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, waring against such practice.

The Commission, in a statement issued on Thursday by its Assistant Director, Public Affairs, Hajiya Fatima Sanda Usara,also warned that the Saudi Arabian authorities are very strict on any form of politicking while in their land, especially in the Holy Ka’aba where devotees engage in solemn prayers.

The statement said, “The NAHCON leadership had observed with dismay the unfortunate trend where politicians display posters of their candidates in the grand mosque in Makkah.

This action is tantamount to a desecration of a religious sanctuary which attracts penalties when apprehended. Hence, in the interest of the actors and Nigeria’s image, pilgrims are cautioned to desist from such illegal activities please,” NAHCON warned.

In another development, NAHCON, in its role as regulator, coordinator, and supervisor of Hajj and Umrah matters, has embarked on Ramadan Umrah monitoring both from Nigeria and in Saudi Arabia, disclosing that data have been gathered on the performance of tour operators with complaints compiled where necessary.

In the course of their assignment, NAHCON Umrah monitoring team traversed the cities of Makkah and Madinah scouting for stranded pilgrims needing assistance.

Usara said the team successfully identified some tour operators who accordingly discharged their duties to their clients instantly.

She, however, added that for those tour operators who could not be reached, NAHCON staff on ground liaised with the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah who provided phone numbers to call for intervention.

Consequently, she said legitimate complaints are invited from dissatisfied pilgrims as well as tour operators with valid contract papers signed between the two parties, noting that this will aid NAHCON in adjudicating in the matters.
