INDEPENDENT Hajj Reporters, a civil society organisation (CSO) which monitors and reports hajj/Umrah activities, has constituted a five-man committee to monitor the process of executing Hadaya (animal sacrifice) on behalf of Nigerian pilgrims during this year’s hajj.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by its National Coordinator, Ibrahim Muhammed and Publicity Secretary, Abubakar Mahmoud.
The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), in 2016, appointed Jaiz Bank as the sole collector of Hadaya payment on behalf of Nigeria.
According to the agreement, Jaiz Bank will remit the collection to the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) to carry out the rites.
IDB is the only bank authorised to undertake the exercise for all pilgrims.
“In compliance with the transparency policy of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, NAHCON and the various state Muslim pilgrims welfare boards recently presented the breakdown of 2019 hajj fare to the public.
