NAHCON issues Hajj 2022 guidelines to state pilgrims’ boards.
The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has directed State Muslims Pilgrims’ Welfare Boards/Agencies and Commissions (SPWBs) to migrate Hajj fare deposits made by intending pilgrims to the Hajj Savings Scheme (HSS) platform with Ja’iz bank as part of the preparations for the Hajj in 2022.
Due to its profitability and transparent design, the HSS platform was approved as the unified registration option in accordance with the commission’s first come, first served eligibility criterion. This option was carefully considered as a criterion for those who had previously made deposits. Please note that unless the host country restructures the pilgrims’ welfare arrangement, the status quo remains the same under the states.
As a result, NAHCON urges SPWB/A/Cs to expedite the migration of pilgrims’ funds into the scheme so that prudent Hajj preparations can begin taking into account the time factor.
The commission’s leadership recognizes the speed with which a few states responded to the directive, describing it as a critical contribution to a successful Hajj. Many more SPWB Executive Secretaries have been recognized for their efforts to migrate their pilgrims’ Hajj fares into the approved channel. Others who haven’t started yet are encouraged to do so right away to avoid making last-minute mistakes. Read more hajj 2022
NAHCON pledges to provide unwavering support to any state welfare board experiencing technical difficulties in transferring the funds. SPWBs in this situation are advised to seek assistance from their local Ja’iz bank branch.
