Earlier today, the Honourable Chief Commissioner of the Public Complaints Commission, Hon. Abimbola Ayo-Yusuf paid a courtesy visit to the Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission, NCPC, Reverend Yakubu Pam.

The Honourable Chief Commissioner said the visit was to foster collaboration between the two organizations that will bring about desirable service delivery to Nigerians.

He disclosed that that the Commission’s attention has been drawn to some challenges arising from the operations of NCPC such as delay in flights and pilgrims asconding while on pilgrimage among many others.

Hon. Abimbola Ayo-Yusuf said in order to ensure successful operations of NCPC, all hands must be on deck and assured the Executive Secretary that the Commission’s doors are always opened for further collaborations in that regard.

In his response, the Executive Secretary, Reverend Yakubu Pam appreciated the Honourable Chief Commissioner and members of his entourage for the August visit. He expressed gratitude to the Commission for its willingness to collaborate with his office to ensure effective service delivery.

He stated that pilgrimage to the Holy sights is currently being affected by the rise in the strength of the Dollar and the ongoing Isreali-Palestine war. He added that despite the fact that the Federal government has discontinued the funding of pilgrimage, some well-meaning individuals and organizations as well as State governments are still assisting.

The Executive Secretary also appreciated President Ahmed Bola Tinubu for his support to ensure smooth pilgrimage to Jordan in the months of September and October, 2023.

The Honourable Chief Commissioner was accompanied on the visit by his counterparts representing the FCT, Oyo and Ekiti States, Hon. Dalhatu Ezekiel Musa, Hon. Folawiyo Bello and Hon. Kayode Bamisile respectively as well as the Secretary to the Commission Hajiya Salamatu Jummai Mamman and other top Management Staff of the Commission’ Headquarters.
