THE National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has sworn in members of its newly created Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit (ACTU).
The chairman of the commission, Alhaji Zikrullah Hassan, inaugurated the unit on Thursday at the Hajj House, Abuja, in the presence of Mr Kayode Kufolati, the head of the Monitoring and Intelligence Unit of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), who represented the commission’s chairman, Professor Bolaji Owasanoye.
According to an online medium dedicated to reporting of hajj activities in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia, Hajj Reporters, the swearing in of the unit capped the process of having a body responsible for overseeing and instilling transparency in the hajj industry in Nigeria.
Hajj Reporters recalled that the immediate past board of NAHCON had been given the nod to create the anti-graft unit but the process could not be completed before the exit of the board.
The plan, it said, was to create a unit comprising of members of anti-corruption agencies like the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), ICPC, National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and the police.
The unit is expected to commence operations immediately.
