Al-Makura assures intending pilgrims of successful hajj

15 August 2015, 09:00

Lafia - Gov. Umaru Al-Makura of Nasarawa state on Friday in Lafia assured intending Muslim pilgrims that the state government would provide every necessary facility for their successful hajj at the holy land.

The governor gave the assurance when he received Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, the Amirul Hajj for the state’s 2015 pilgrimage, on a courtesy visit to his office.

He said that the need to ensure a hitch-free exercise informed the state government’s decision to assemble people of impeccable character to constitute the hajj committee.

He lauded Adamu for accepting to serve as chairman of the state’s delegation to the annual exercise, and described the visit as a mark of honour and demonstration of leadership quality.

"I am really overwhelmed with this show of honour and patriotism by the distinguished senator.

"I commend him specially for making this trip to show appreciation for a job that I would ordinarily have thought that he would grudgingly accept giving the task and difficulties associated with it.

"As far as I am concerned, you have not only made my day but the day for a very successful hajj operation this year,’’ he said.
According to the governor, your action has demonstrated the success ahead of the exercise.

"As far as I am concerned, you have exhibited the leadership qualities that some of us who are still at the helm of affairs are envious of,’’ he said

Earlier, Sen. Adamu said that he led the delegation to the government house to appreciate the governor for finding him worthy to lead the team to this year's exercise.

"We are here to show our appreciation and state clearly that we will not betray the trust you have given us,’’ he said.
