The Amir Hajj, Barrister Dhikrullahi Olakunle Hassan, refunded the money at the Government Secretariat in Osogbo, Osun State on behalf of the governor, saying that a sum of N11, 500 was repaid to 852 pilgrims on April 6th, 2016 and N9, 300 on June 6 to sum up a total of N17, 721,600.
Speaking with journalists, Barrister Hassan said that 852 pilgrims from Osun went to perform Hajj in Mecca last year, adding that the money was refunded by Saudi government through National Hajj Commission of Nigeria due to the failure to render some services as a result of crane crash during Hajj.
He said that the governor paid the first repayment immediately it was received in April, saying that the second pay back in June was got last week and has already been paid
The Amir added that 9 pilgrims were yet to receive the first reimbursement paid in April as they failed to show up , adding that government is committed to give them when they come.
He stated further that both the first and second refunds would be given to them when they come.
Amir therefore stressed that if the 9 people failed to come for the money, it would be returned to the National Hajj Commission’s account.
Some of the beneficiaries of the refund were: Alhaji Rauf Tiamiyu, batch one; Alhaji Lukman Oyebamiji, batch one; Alhaji Tiamiyu Yusuf, batch two; Alhaji Adeleke Abdul-Ganiyu, batch two; Alhaja Abimbola Mujidat, batch three as well as Alhaja Simbiyat Durodoye, batch three.
