Spokesman of the commission Uba Mana said early collection and remittance was necessary to facilitate early conclusion of arrangements. He said other hajj components including suitcases and uniform to be used by the pilgrims, were to be determined by the state pilgrims' welfare boards, agencies and commissions in line with existing guidelines.

"The northern departure zones are: minimum fare N998, 248.92 (with $750 Basic Travel Allowance (BTA), medium fare N1, 047, 498.92 (with $1,000 BTA), and maximum fare N1, 145, 998.92 (with $1,500 BTA)," he said.
