The Ogun Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board on Wednesday said it has commenced the sale of forms for 2015 Hajj to prospective Muslim pilgrims from the state.
The Secretary of the Board, Alhaji Sefiu Rasheed, made this known in a statement issued in Abeokuta.
He stated that the application form was N5,000, along with two passport size photographs for endorsement.
He noted that intending pilgrims should make an initial deposit of N600,000 on or before March 13 and obtain an official receipt from the Finance and Accounts Department of the Board’s Secretariat, Block B, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
