He said that the refund would also take care of the deceased pilgrims. He therefore, directed pilgrims from Ilorin West local Government Area of the state to come to the Board in llorin on Wednesday, while Thursday is fixed for pilgrims from Asa and Ilorin South Local Government Areas.

According to him, the payment will be the turn of pilgrims from the Ilorin East and Moro on Friday. He said that pilgrims from Kwara South Senatorial District were slated to collect their refund by Monday.

Tunde-Jimoh added that Tuesday was fixed for pilgrims from Kwara North Senatorial District as non Kwara pilgrims would collect their refund on Wednesday, Jan. 15. The executive secretary urged all the 2019 pilgrims, who travelled with the Board, to come along with their original e-passport, one photocopy of their e-passport and receipt of payment of their Hajj fare.
