The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved N2.6 billion for the purchase of Abuja Metro Plaza to serve as the Corporate Headquarters of the cc.

The chairman of NAHCON, Abdullahi Mukhtar, confirmed the approval in a statement he issued in Abuja on Wednesday.

According to him, the approval was given at the weekly FEC meeting chaired by the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo at the State House, Abuja.

The approval was granted consequent upon the commission’s ability to raise the sum of N2 billion out of the N2.4 billion of the agreed price. The balance of about N500 million which is about 20 percent is to be funded from the commission’s 2017 budget appropriated capital expenditure.

The main building of the property after renovation will serve as NAHCON’s Corporate Headquarters complete with conference halls, board rooms, training centre etc. The two annexes are to be rented out for the commission to generate revenue in its strive to achieve financial autonomy from the government,“ he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    This is that Islamization they warned us of. Almajiri can raise 2B but still depend of donor organisations at IDP camps. Ok

    It is bad enough that NAHCON as a body exists, but cementing their position and giving them 2billion to build their HQ is just abysmal.

    We are in a cess pit, how deep we are? Idk.

    Nigeria, you will not cease to amaze me. 2.6 billion naira to build hajj commission. In this economic recession where poverty is ravishing your citizens, insecurity, poor health facilities, bad roads, no employment, business going down etc, it is hajj commission that is your utmost priority. Hmmmmm…….. Religion will not save Nigeria but doing the right things. Building hajj commission should be the least thing Federal government should be thinking of now. Using tax payers money to build hajj commission for some people to go to Saudi to pray. Is this what the people want at this point. Is this the development Nigeria is advocating?
