ALGON purchases N30m audio recorders for Jigawa pilgrims

The Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON),Jigawa state chapter, has spent N30 million on the purchase of audio recorders for intending pilgrims from the state.

The Secretary of the association, Alhaji Abba Daguro, told the newsmen in Dutse on Monday that the tapes were meant to assist the pilgrims to record and learn the etiquette of Hajj.

Abba said that the gesture was a moral obligation on its part to ensure the success of the pilgrimage.

“Last year, we purchased the same gadgets and it is our hope that we will continue with the gesture, annually.

“We also hope the pilgrims would perform their holy journey to Saudi Arabia for sober reflection and repentance and not for any other thing,” the secretary said.

He urged the pilgrims to exhibit good behaviour during their stay in the holy land. (NAN)
