The board had conducted medical screening and inoculation for all the intending pilgrims from the state for the 2019 hajj operations.

According to him, the exercise which is one of the several conditions to be met by the pilgrims is in accordance with the rules and regulation of the National Hajj Commission.

The process, he noted, would enable the Commission to know the health status of pilgrims that would undergo this year’s hajj in Saudi Arabia in order to prepare adequately for them.

Salami emphasised that the present administration would not tolerate anyone found to be of shady or fraudulent character among the state contingent for the pilgrimage.

He assured the intending Pilgrims of a hitch-free pilgrimage, saying that efforts were on toward ensuring a successful exercise.

He added that arrangements had already been concluded for accommodation, transportation and feeding in the holy land.
