Chairman of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), Malam Jalal Ahmad Arabi has called on states and tour operators to intensively sensitize, educate and enlighten their Pilgrims on the 2025 Hajj timeline and to adhere to it accordingly.
He stated this at an annual event marking the end of the 2024 Hajj and the beginning of the 2025 Hajj Season, as announced by the Saudi Arabian Minister of Hajj and Umrah, Dr. Fauzan Al-Rabiah at the Ministry’s office in Makkah.
The Minister thanked Allah, the Pilgrims, and all government and private sectors that partook directly or indirectly in the great success of the 2024 Hajj.
He therefore expressed readiness to start the preparations for the 2025 Hajj by presenting all the Global Hajj Affairs’  Missions documents with their quota.
The NAHCON Chairman, during the annual Post-Arafat Stakeholders’ meeting, revealed that Nigeria maintains its quota of 95,000 (Ninety-five thousand Pilgrims’ slots) for the (1446H Hajj) equivalent to 2025 Hajj Operation.
Malam Jalal Arabi reiterated to the Nigerian gathering that the Commission will be on course as guided by the Saudi Ministry of Hajj’s Timeline to commence arrangements for its Pilgrims as follows.
The NAHCON Chairman/CEO further explained that he was challenged by what he witnessed at the podium of the celebration of the closing of the 2024 Hajj and opening of the 2025 Hajj activities.
