FCT Set To Repay Excess Payment To Hajj Pilgrims

The Federal Capital Territory Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board (FCT-MPWB) will begin refunding overpaid pilgrims to pilgrims who participated in this year’s Hajj through its board on Monday.

The director of the board, Malam Muhammad Nasiru Danmallam, said in a statement that anyone who paid the set Hajj rate would receive the balance through their respective bank accounts.

Danmallam, in the statement signed by the board’s PR officer Muhammad Lawal Aliyu, said that all pilgrims, who paid more than the N2,449,607.89, which was the actual Hajj rate for the year, the overpaid amount would get back.

The FCT-MPWB director asked the affected pilgrims to submit their original payment receipts with account details to the account section of the board or to their respective area officials to process the payment.

According to the director, pilgrims who paid through the Hajj savings plan or had their Hajj rate balanced through the scheme would get their money back through the accounts they opened for the exercise.

He said beneficiaries without a bank account must send a letter authorizing the board to make the payment to third-party accounts, and provide the means to identify the owners of the accounts to credit the refund.

In total, 1,584 pilgrims of the 1,993 pilgrims who participated in the Hajj through the administration this year will benefit from the reimbursement.
