The National Hajj Council wishes to inform all Pilgrims that it is still making frantic efforts to air lift them to Saudi Arabia to perform this year’s Hajj. Our mission in Jeddah together with other countries facing the same problem which is an international one, have requested for an extension. The issue is not about flight but about extension of time from the Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We are hopeful it would be granted. We would update you on developments.
The National Hajj Council is briefing the Office of the National Chief Imam, the leadership of FOMWAG, Ahlus Sunna Wa Jammat and the Coalition of Muslim Organisations Ghana about the latest developments and how to resolve this crisis. At the appropriate time the NHC and the leadership will come out with the way forward.
We wish to reiterate that the Government and especially the Office of the Vice President has nothing to do with this problem. On the contrary Government and the Vice president are seriously working to help resolve the crisis.
The NHC is still appealing to the Muslim Community to be patient and exercise restraint.
