The Federal Capital Territory Muslims Pilgrims Welfare Board (FCT-MPWB) has commenced the biometric registration exercise for intending pilgrims for the 2018 hajj in Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
LEADERSHIP Friday gathered that a firm assigned by the Saudi Arabian government for the exercise in Abuja before issuance of visa is carrying out the registration exercise.
A statement by the spokesperson of the board, Muhammad Lawal Aliyu, which was made available to LEADERSHIP Friday yesterday, disclosed that intending pilgrims from Bwari and Abuja Municipal Area Councils (AMAC) would be captured on Thursday, this week, while those from Kuje and Gwagwalada area councils would have their biometric capture exercise on Friday (today).
Aliyu also advised the intending pilgrims from Kwali and Abaji area councils to be present for the exercise on Monday next week, while those from the headquarters would get their biometric captured on Tuesday.
He stated that all intending pilgrims who have completed their payment should see their area officers at the venue for the collection of their e-passport before proceeding for the exercise.
The spokesperson also warned that the exercise is a mandatory aspect of visa processing application for hajj this year, adding that failure to participate would disqualify the intending pilgrim from performing the hajj.
