Pilgrims delayed from coming back home because of fuel scarcity

The scarcity of  fuel for air planes has caused a delay in the return of Nigerian pilgrims from the holy land. According to the Jigawa State Pilgrims Welfare Board, Alhaji Falalu Tukur Gantsa, aviation fuel was only available in Kano state and Abuja,  in the entire country.

Alhaji Falalu said carriers faced a lot of difficulties before getting fuel to return to the holy land, whenever they bring pilgrims into the country.

He, however, assured of the commencement of airlift of Jigawa pilgrims back to the country, yesterday, saying the pilgrims had already collected their boarding passes.
