The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has allotted 43,000 seats to Nigeria for the 2022 Hajj.
Sources confirmed this on Wednesday, saying the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) is working on an official statement.
About 150,000 intending pilgrims may be jostling for the seats being backlog for 2020 and 2021 and a fraction of the 2019 intending pilgrims that couldn’t perform the exercise.
Respite came the way of many Muslims, especially intending pilgrims around the world when the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia announced about 10 days ago that one million pilgrims would perform the 2022 Hajj, out of which 85 per cent would be allocated to external pilgrims while the remaining percentage would be for Saudi residents.
