The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama has promised to reduce the cost of Hajj if he is elected in the 2024 General Elections.

The former president highlighted that the current Hajj fare, which is set at GH¢75,000 is expensive, thus preventing many ordinary Muslims from fulfilling their pilgrimage to Mecca.

He made this commitment during the Eid prayers with the Ahlussuna Wal-Jamah Muslim group at the forecourt of the State House.

“As we speak, our pilgrims are in Mecca performing the Hajj, may Allah bring them back safely. Those who have been able to go are the privileged ones because the Hajj fare is pegged at GH¢75,000 and it is very difficult for the ordinary Muslim to perform the Hajj.

But Isha Allah, if we win in this election and we come into government, we are going to work reduce the Hajj fare to so that everybody can go,” he stated.
