Senate Approves New Captains for Hajj Commission


The Senate has approved the appointments of the Chairman and Commissioners for the National Hajj Commission (NAHCON), in line with a request from President Goodluck Jonathan.

The approval by the Senate of the new members of the NAHCON Board has, however, laid to rest expectations, to the contrary, earlier raised by petitions against the nominees of Jonathan coming from the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), headed by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar.

Jonathan had, in a letter forwarded to the Senate, earlier this month, nominated Abdullahi Muktar Muhammad and eight others as Chairman and commissioners respectively.
