Hajj: 27 Ghanaian pilgrims fail to make holy trip to Mecca

At least some 27 individuals who have duly paid for the holy trip to Mecca, were unable to secure a seat on the last flight.

This, according to the Hajj Board, was due to oversubscription.

Chairman of the Board, Alhaji Ben Abdullah, assured the public that every effort is being made to find a suitable solution for the 27 affected pilgrims.

Despite this challenge, a total of 4,130 pilgrims from Ghana arrived in Jeddah to wrap up the successful completion of their airlifting to the Holy City.

Departing from Accra on Saturday morning, the flight had been rescheduled from Thursday to accommodate additional document processing, ensuring a full flight for the journey.

Some 10 chartered flights organised by the Hajj Board which successfully airlifted the over 4,000 Ghanaian pilgrims for the 2023 Hajj, with flights departing from both Tamale and Accra.

Each zone, northern and southern, organized five flights to facilitate the pilgrimage journey.

The official commencement of the 2023 Hajj was made on the evening of Monday, June 26, 2023, in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

The Ghanaian pilgrims, having arrived safely, will now embark on this sacred and significant religious event with gratitude and anticipation.
