Governor Bala Muhammad Commissioned A Multi-million Naira Hajj Camp Constructed In Bauchi [PHOTOS]

In Islamic terminology, Hajj is a pilgrimage made to the Kaaba, the "House of God", in the sacred city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

It is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, alongside Shahadah, Salat, Zakat and Sawm. The Hajj is a demonstration of the solidarity of the Muslim people, and their submission to God.

The word Hajj means "to attend a journey", which connotes both the outward act of a journey and the inward act of intentions.

Governor Bala Muhammad commissioned a multi-million naira newly constructed permanent Bauchi Hajj Camp named Sultan Sa'ad Abubakar Pilgrims Camp.

The new Hajj Camp is to provide an alternative not only for the safety and comfort of intending pilgrims but to provide a conducive environment for officials of the state's pilgrims welfare board during hajj exercise. The edifice has been constructed according to international standards and is one of the best so far in the entire African continent.

Amongst other amenities, the facility has an administrative block, camp clinic, screening hall, multipurpose hall, a mosque and ablution area, lock-up shops, food canteen, male and female hostels, and a kitchen.
