Oyo State Government Cancels 2015 Hajj Sponsorship

0
The Oyo State Government has cancelled the 2015 annual
sponsorship of Muslims to the holy lands of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia,
we have been told.
This came barely 24 hours after the government of Abiola
Ajimobi announced the stoppage of payment of fees for West African Examinations
Council (WAEC) students across the state public secondary schools. The
government also re-introduced school fees in all secondary schools in the
state.
‎Alhaji Abdulkarim Adeleke, the Oyo State Pilgrims Welfare
Board (Muslim wing) Secretary, said on Thursday the government was not
sponsoring any pilgrim for the 2015 Hajj.
Adeleke told reporters in Ibadan that the state government
cancelled the sponsorship of pilgrims to the 2015 Hajj due to economic
difficulties.
