According to the imam, the behaviour of the pilgrims in the holy land, either positive or negative, will determine the perception of Nigerians by people from other parts of the world.

He also urged them to pray for emergence of God-fearing leaders in the 2023 general elections to further enhance good governance in the country.

The cleric reminded them of the importance of Hajj, as one of the pillars of Islam.

The cleric enjoined them to seek for more knowledge on the spiritual exercise in which they would be engaged while in the holy land.

“The pilgrims must note that they will go to the holy land for nothing other than worship, and as such, they need the knowledge on how to go about some of the worship acts.

“They must also be mindful of the numerous challenges the country is faced with, especially the 2023 general elections, which needs serious prayers for good leaders to emerge.

“The prayers will enable the leaders to put in place sound economic policies and programmes that will improve the wellbeing of the citizens and ensure even development for the betterment of all,” Abdulnafiu said.

He called on Nigerians to be peace-loving, tolerant and eschew any act that might hinder the nation’s progress.
