NCPC begins 2021 main pilgrimage in May – Executive Secretary



Rev Yakubu Pam,the Executive Secretary, Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission, (NCPC) says the 2021 main Pilgrimage exercise to Israel, Jordan and Rome will commence by the end of May, 2022.

Pam made this known on Thursday in Abuja, during a meeting of Conference of states, comprising states chairmen and executive secretaries of states Christian Pilgrims Welfare Boards, including FCT.

The NCPC Boss urged the state pilgrimage leaders to work with the new date for the commencement of the 2021 main Pilgrimage Exercise by ensuring that they step up their mobilization drive for intending pilgrims in their various states.

Pam also enjoined the stakeholders to apply wisdom of God in carrying out their pilgrimage assignment as pilgrimage is a spiritual exercise.

He posited that with such wisdom, they would be able to break barriers and achieve much in the mobilization of intending pilgrims.

He decried the low sponsorship of intending Christian pilgrims from the North West region of the country.

He admonished the pilgrimage managers from the North West to join forces with the Commission to change the narratives through effective mobilization and strong advocacy.

The NCPC helmsman also hinted that the commission would soon commence aggressive mobilization drive to different geo-political zones for increased pilgrimage sponsorship.

The executive secretary said that would be decided when him and his team would meet with the states Chief Executives as well as relevant stakeholders.

He added that during the mobilization drive, the commission would be able to inspect some designated Airports that would be used for the airlift of intending pilgrims from that Zone.

Pam and the members of the Conference of States agreed to convene a meeting with Church leaders, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN and pilgrimage leaders to discuss the future of Christian Pilgrimage in Nigeria.
