Buhari accepts Emirs’ offer to supervise 2015 hajj

The Sultan is being represented by a committee of Emirs under the leadership of the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sunusi II.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, confirmed this in a statement on Sunday.
Shehu said the development did not contradict the earlier directive by the President that the Federal Government delegation to the 2015 Hajj exercise be suspended in line with the cost-saving measures of his administration.
The presidential spokesman added that in accepting this voluntary offer of service, Buhari made it clear that there would not be government funds involved in the mission by the Emir.
He said the government would not name any members into the Emir’s delegation.
Shehu, however, assured Nigerians that all measures had been taken to ensure that the well being of pilgrims was well managed by the various ad-hoc committees on medical, accommodation, transport, logistics, information and publicity, aviation and tour operators as well as security that generally assist the commission in ensuring hitch-free Hajj operation.
He quoted the President as commending Sanusi for adding the responsibility to his own personal Hajj plans.
