Hajj: NAHCON tasks contractors on speedy completion of projects

The Chairman, National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, Barrister Zikhirullah Hassan has urged contractors to speed up the completion of various Hajj Development Levy Projects across the country.

The Chairman made the call when he met with contractors handling the Projects to assess the level of work accomplished from time of award of contract to date.

In a statement, said the meeting was necessary if Nigerian pilgrims are to start enjoying the utilities as soon as possible.

It would be recalled that NAHCON is constructing various amenities across the country for use by pilgrims and for revenue generation during non-Hajj operational periods.

The constructions include hotel-like structures for camping of intending pilgrims before airlift, construction of clinics, event centres, mosques, and perimeter fencing among others.

Works at the several sites in all the geopolitical zones are at advanced levels while some have been completed.

In attendance at the meeting were project supervisors and other relevant officials from the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing. Also in attendance were the three permanent Commissioners and senior management staff of the Commission.
