Nigerian pilgrims observing the 2024 Hajj in Saudi Arabia have expressed their dissatisfaction as they lament over the quality of food served to them despite the N8 million Hajj fee.

The development was made known by a Nigerian netizen Babagana Digima in a post he made on his official Facebook page.

Sharing the photo of the alleged food, he revealed that the meal was what the pilgrims were served today. May 28 despite the N8 million they paid for the Hajj.

The man added that the $300 that was promised to be given to them by the authorities hadn’t been received by the pilgrims.

“After paying N8m for Hajj see the breakfast that our pilgrims are being given! Nahcon Nigeria Fatima Mustapha. This what was given today 28th May 2024.


“In fact some pilgrims have already started begging to get money to buy food because even their remaining $300 that was promised to be paid to them in Saudi (out of $500) is not forthcoming from the authorities!”
