He said “All pilgrims are back to the country, except one woman that lost her Passport; we left her behind in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia because she lost her Passport”
The official, however, said that Nigerian officials in the Holy city were processing a new Passport to enable the pilgrim return home.
He described the exercise as “generally a success”, and attributed that to the full support and total commitment of the Bauchi State Government. Read also: OPINION…My Mission As Aspirant For The Office Of PDP National Publicity Scribe
