The FCT Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board (FCT-MPWB), has advised 2024 prospective pilgrims to Saudi Arabia to deposit N4.5 million with the board, pending the determination of the actual fee.
The Assistant Chief Information Officer of the board, Mr Ahmad Saleh, stated this in a statement in Abuja on Friday.
He said that the selling of forms and registration for the exercise would commence on Sept. 25.
Saleh asked the prospective pilgrims to make the payment to the FCT Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, Abuja, through a bank draft.
He urged them to submit their valid international passports, and National Identification Number at the point of registration in any of the six Area Councils in FCT.
“The board does not accept cash deposits and does not entertain registration by proxy. It will also adhere strictly to the principles of first come, first served basis,” he said.
