Pres. Tinubu subsidises cost of 2024 hajj with just N90 billion — VP Shettima

The Federal Government has said it subsidised the cost of the 2024 Hajj pilgrimage with the sum of N90 billion.

Vice President Kashim Shettima disclosed this on Wednesday, May 15, at the inauguration of the 2024 National Hajj operation, held at the Sir Ahmadu Bello International Airport, Birnin Kebbi, the Kebbi State capital.

According to him, “You may recall that this year, we had a major challenge in announcing the final hajj fare for the 2024 Muslim pilgrimage due to fluctuation in foreign exchange rates.

President Bola Tinubu also works round the clock to control the downwards spiral of our local currency to bring relief to our pilgrims and other Nigerians, a move that eventually succeeded in lowering the fare.

The President approved the release of N90 billion to subsidise the pilgrimage cost for this year’s hajj.”
