NAHCON extends Hajj registration to Jan 31


The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, has extended the Hajj registration deadline to January 31, 2024.


This was contained in a statement signed by Fatima Sanda Usara, NAHCON’s Assistant Director for Public Affairs.

According to the statement: “The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) is pleased to announce the Federal Government’s approval for an extension of the deadline for the closure of Hajj Registration. The new date is set for January 31, 2024, providing an additional opportunity for individuals to participate in this sacred pilgrimage.

“Consequently, NAHCON is confident that before the expiration of the new deadline, with the support of its sister agencies, the Commission would have determined the total cost of 2024 Hajj.”


“NAHCON seizes this chance to remind intending pilgrims and other stakeholders that the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has slated 25th February as the end date for signing all contracts, signalling the end of payments into IBAN accounts.

“With this extension, NAHCON has barely a month to finalise payment of all Hajj deposits into its IBAN account for the 2024 Hajj.

“This extension, even though it overstretches NAHCON’s preparatory timeline, reflects the Commission’s chairman, Malam Jalal Ahmad Arabi’s commitment to accommodating the concerns of stakeholders.”
