El-Rufai Sends N20m ‘Sallah Gift’ To Kaduna Pilgrims In Saudi

Nasir el-RufaiGovernor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has sent the sum of N20million as Eid-el-Kabir Sallah gift to the 5,710 Kaduna State Pilgrims in Saudi Arabia.
Each of the 5,710 pilgrim who went for the 2015 Hajj exercise under Kaduna State, got 50 Saudi Riyals each, which is equivalent to N3,500 in the Sallah largesse.
The State Amirul Hajj and Emir of Birnin Gwari, Alhaji Zubairu Jibril Maigwari II, presented the state government’s widow’s mite to the pilgrims in Mina, Saudi Arabia.
The Amirul Hajj also conveyed Governor El-Rufai’s greetings to the pilgrims for successful completion of the hajj exercise.
“The Governor has asked me to greet you happy Sallah and congratulate you for successful completion of the hajj exercise. He also prayed that Almighty Allah will accept your hajj”, the Emir said.
The governor, however, urged the pilgrims to desist from spreading rumour concerning the casualties of the last Thursday’s stampede at Mina, advising them to wait for the relevant authorities to confirm the casualties and get across to the families of the victims.
