Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has travelled to Mecca, Saudi Arabia to join over two million Muslim faithful gathered in the holy land for this year’s hajj.

Pilgrimage to Mecca is one of the pillars of Islam for Muslims who have the financial means.


Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to Saraki, Yusuph Olaniyonu said in a statement that Senate President will spend the period of the pilgrimage to pray for the unity, stability and development of Nigeria as well as better health for the leader of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari.


He will also spend the period of the holy pilgrimage to pray for more success for the Eighth National Assembly in the execution of its Legislative Agenda which is aimed at helping to improve the standard of living of the citizenry and positively transform the national economy.


The Senate President is expected back early September when the Hajj rites would have been completed by pilgrims.
