He explained that during a Courtesy Visit to the Commission’s Head office in Abuja, the Governor commended the Commission for the seamless airlift arrangement made in the airlift of Zamfara pilgrims.
According to him; the fact that there isn’t so much noise and fuss anywhere showed that the operations are moving smoothly with little hiccups.
“I want to commend the Management and Board of the Commission for the way and manner this year’s Hajj airlift is being conducted across the Country”.
