Nigerian Government Reduces Cost Of Pilgrimage Fare To Israel



The Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC) has reviewed and reduced the cost of 2019 pilgrimage fare to the State of Israel from N750,000 to N715,000.

The Chairman of the Commission, Rev. Yomi Kasali, revealed this on Friday at the signing of the agreement of the 2019 pilgrimage contract between the commission and the service providers that would participate in the Christian pilgrimage exercise to the Holy Land.

Kasali explained that the cost of pilgrimage was reduced due to pleas from stakeholders, adding that the country was faced with tough times and so not everyone could afford the initial fee.

“I want to inform the general public that this year’s 2019 pilgrimage cost has been reduced to N715,000.

“The fees were reduced because we looked at the plea of the states during the conference of states meeting. We have a responsive leadership, our management and the board sat and reviewed it downward.
