The Katsina State Government has announced donation of N147.9 million equivalent to SRA1.5 million (Saudi Riyals) to its 4,930 pilgrims as ‘Sallah gift’ during the 2017 hajj.

He said that each pilgrim would be given SRA 300.

‘’We appreciate the good behavior exhibited by our pilgrims in the Holy land, in fact, the Saudi Arabia authority has named Nigerians as the most law abiding pilgrims during this year’s hajj, which is a welcome development,’’ he said.

He also urged the pilgrims to continue to pray to Allah to grant Nigeria peace, unity and development.

Mannir also prayed to Allah to accept their hajj and return them home safely.
