The board’s Public Relations Officer, Yunusa Abdullahi, told journalists in Kaduna that fixing the deadline became necessary in order to meet the June 30 deadline fixed by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

He warned that defaulters would forfeit their chance to make the trip as NAHCON had also fixed deadline for remittance of the fares to be the same June 30, 2018.
