Sheik I.C. Quaye, Chairman of the newly inducted Hajj Board

No more Hajj challenges - IC Quaye
The Chairman of the newly inducted Hajj Board,
Sheik I.C. Quaye, has pledged to take the
necessary steps to prevent any hitches in the
organisation of this year's Hajj.

He said unlike past years when all pilgrims
converged on one venue to be airlifted, creating
chaos and confusion, his administration would find
alternatives to ensure the process becomes

Speaking to Class FM’s Kwesi Parker Wilson after
President Akufo-Addo swore in the new Hajj Board
on Thursday, February 16, he said: “This time the
pilgrims are not going to converge on one place
where there will be struggles and all that. You
will be informed two days ahead so those who are
to leave are those who will go and converge and
get the flight.”

He assured the Muslim community that in the
instance that a person is unable to make the trip
after payment, he or she would be reimbursed.

“We are not going to face a situation where people
will pay and will not go. All those who pay must
have the opportunity of performing the Hajj.”

According to him, debts that have been incurred
will be “managed” to enable Muslims embark on the
next pilgrimage with ease and comfort.
