Stakeholders in Hajj operations in Ghana have met management of the Ghana Hajj Secretariat and some members of the Ghana Hajj Board ahead of the start of airlift of Ghanaian pilgrims to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for this year’s Hajj.
The stakeholders include the Ghana Airport Company, Ghana Police Service, Ghana Ambulance Service, Narcotics Control Commission, Ghana National Fire Service and Hajj agents. Others are Port Health, National Security, Ghana Immigration Service, Aviance, Veterinary Service and the National Intelligence Bureau.
These stakeholders play crucial roles in Hajj operations over the years in ensuring Ghanaian pilgrims are airlifted successfully to Saudi Arabia.
The Hajj Secretariat which is the institution of Hajj in Ghana responsible for Hajj operations, has already organised all the necessary measures and activities leading to the airlift of pilgrims and general preparations for this year’s event.
The meeting which took place at the Ghana Hajj Secretariat is part of series of engagements with stakeholders which started some weeks ago.
Members of the various government institutions at the meeting contributed ideas and strategies that will make this year’s Hajj operations another success.
Executive Secretary of the Ghana Hajj Secretariat, Alhaji Farouk Hamza, after the meeting took the stakeholders on a tour of the facilities at the Hajj village under the Secretariat as part of preparations for the journey.
The stakeholders were very excited on the level of preparations by the Secretariat and promised to give out their best in the interest of Ghana.
