The Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission, NCPC, on Wednesday, announced fees of N406,150 for those intending to embark on pilgrimage to Israel for year 2012.



Executive Secretary of the commission, Mr. Kennedy Opara, in Abuja, also announced the appointment of two airline, Atlas Jet Airline and Messrs K S Travel/Empire Aviation Services, to airlift pilgrims for this year’s Christian pilgrimage.

On the fees fixed for this year’s pilgrimage, he said: “The package for the 2012 pilgrimage exercise to be paid by intending pilgrims is as follows: pilgrims travelling to Israel alone are to pay N406,150; those going to Israel, Rome or Greece are to pay N529,440, while the special group, which includes the aged and physically-challenged are to pay N400,425.”

He added that President Goodluck Jonathan had approved Easy Link Aviation Service and TAT Nigeria Limited to “be on standby in the event of failure of any of the first approved air carriers.”

I don't know what biz Nigerian government have with religion. I believe Nigeria is the only country in the world where the government bankroll pilgrimage/hajj. Poverty is on the rise everyday in Nigeria, and we have the money to waste on pilgrimage and hajj. I think Nigeria should change her name to ''Wonderland'' cos it's a country where wonders never cease.

The only alternative to not paying this huge sum of money is NOT going on the pilgrimage.
