The Ogun State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board has extended the payment of outstanding hajj fare balance to Wednesday, April 26, 2023, so as to avail the intending pilgrims the opportunity to complete their actual payment of N2,999,000.
The Executive Secretary of the Board, Alhaji Salau Dauda made this known while speaking with newsmen in his office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, saying ‘’intending pilgrims are mandated to balance up on or before the extended date, as late payments would not be entertained’’.
The Executive Secretary noted that the extension was necessary to accommodate those who are yet to balance their outstanding, adding that the Eid-Fitri holiday was one of the reasons for the extension.
He stated that medical test for intending pilgrims to ascertain their health status before embarking on the journey is ongoing, enjoining those who are yet to undergo the test to show up on Wednesday, April 26, 2023.
Dauda equally advised those who are yet to submit their International Passport to do so immediately in order to commence necessary documentation and processing of their visas with Saudi Arabian authority, urging them to contact the Board Secretariat Complex for further clarifications.
