Katsina State Governor, Malam Dikko Radda, has promised a “hadiya package” of seven hundred and twenty Saudi riyads for each of the state’s intending pilgrims.

The State Government has also promised to provide its usual Sallah gift to pilgrims from the state while in the holy Land.

Governor  Radda made the disclosure  while inaugurating an eleven-member state delegation for this year’s Hajj at the Katsina Government House on Friday. 

The delegation is chaired by a former Deputy Governor of the state, Alhaji Tukur Ahmed Jikamshi, 

Governor Radda directed both the Hajj delegation and the management of the Pilgrims’ Welfare Board to ensure that not a single kobo is deducted from the pilgrims’ basic traveling allowances for any reason.

The Katsina Governor expressed gratitude that, despite the challenges caused by the increase in Hajj fare, the intending pilgrims in the state were able to make full payment.

Governor Radda noted that it is the responsibility of the government to oversee the general conduct of the  2024 Hajj operations from its beginning to end.

This, he said, is in addition to complementing the management of the pilgrims’ welfare board in ensuring a smooth and successful hajj exercise.

Governor Radda maintained that the delegation is expected to produce a comprehensive report on the general conduct, including any shortcomings or successes, with a view to making corrections for future Hajj exercises.

While accepting the offer, the Chairman of the delegation for 2024 Hajj in Katsina, Jikamshi, expressed gratitude to  Governor Radda for finding them fit to serve the state pilgrims.

He promised to work hand-in-hand with the officials of the pilgrims’ board to ensure that state pilgrims receive the best possible experience.
