Alhaji Hussaini Argungu, a board member of the state pilgrims board, lauded the hospitality of the cabin crew of the Saudi Arabian plane, which provided passengers with food and other amenities to ensure their comfort during the flight.

Appreciating the Saudi Airliners for their commitment to a smooth journey, Argungu also commended the Saudi authorities for organizing a warm reception for the first batch of intending pilgrims from Nigeria.

He noted that VIP vehicles were arranged to transport them to various five-star hotels upon arrival.

Alhaji Isa Assalafi, a member of the 2024 Hajj Committee in Kebbi, attributed the success of the Hajj preparations to the unwavering support of the governor, who approved all matters related to Hajj operations.
