Chairman of NAHCON, Malam Jalal Ahmad Arabi, expressed delight in hosting the Imo state governor at the Hajj House. Abuja.

Arabi described Governor Uzodinma as a pillar of support to the Commission and described his interventions in ensuring that intending Muslim pilgrims from his state are able to participate in this year’s Hajj.

In his words, “You have been a pillar of support to us in the Commission through your support in ensuring that Muslims in Imo state are able to participate in the Hajj.
