To prevent the relegation to the background, the Kaduna State Christians Pilgrims Welfare Board is a result of inactivity, a passionate call has been made to political appointees and public spirited individuals to adopt the noble gesture of sponsoring Christians who cannot afford it to pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
The call was made by the Director General, Bureau for Interfaith Kaduna State, Engr. Namadi Musa when interacting with newsmen in Kaduna on at the weekend.
He explained that such inactivity could make staff of the Christians Pilgrims Welfare Board redundant.
Engineer Musa appealed that the only solution in the short run is the sacrifice from people who can sponsor Christian Pilgrims.
Considering the situation and low turn out of the Christian Pilgrims in Kaduna State, Christian appointees should endeavor to pay for their followers to perform the Christian Pilgrimage,” he said.
When asked if the Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board is facing the same threat of redundancy, he said for now they are not.
“More so, the Muslim Pilgrims have more followers that will perform this year’s Pilgrimage unlike the Christian Pilgrims where they have a low turn out,” he pointed out.
The DG stressed that Christians politicians sacrifice to actualizing the Pilgrimage dreams of followers will also impact positively on their electoral fortunes.
