A team of inspectors from the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) were at the Hajj House from 15th – 17th Dec. 2021 for a two-day statutory Resource Visit and Institutional Accreditation.
The exercise is among the processes of granting approval for the licensing of new institutions such as the Hajj Institute of Nigeria (HIN), to be so-called based on the recommendation of the delegation.
HIN has written to the NBTE requesting approval to function as an Innovation Enterprise Institute (IEI) and a Vocational Enterprise Institution (VEI) for the award of National Innovation Diploma (NID) and National Vocational Certificate (NVC)
This was disclosed in a statement signed by Fatima Sanda Usara, Head/Public Affairs.
During a reception organized in appreciation of the visiting team, the NAHCON Chairman, Alhaji Zikrullah Kunle Hassan, emphasized that the goal of the institute is to professionalize the Hajj industry as to be a reference point in Hajj management studies from all over the world, especially English-speaking countries.
He promised full cooperation to the team, expressing confidence that their names would be preserved in the actualization of this historical movement.
The Hajj Institute of Nigeria (HIN) is one among many projects on stream introduced by the Commission to broaden NAHCON’s revenue as well as to standardize Hajj operations.
Speaking, Alhaji Nura Hassan Yakassai disclosed that at the inception of the fourth board, the leadership had three immediate goals in sight: to commence the Hajj Savings scheme, to establish the HIN and to enter Public-Private Partnership for the utilization of NAHCON’s landed properties.
The Commissioner expressed satisfaction that all the three goals are manifesting as realities.
The most important vision of the HIN he re-echoed is to educate Hajj managers with rudimentary knowledge to make operations more successful.
