Bashir El-Rufai Opposes Tinubu Government Policy On …



Bashir El-Rufai, the son of former Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, has voiced his opposition to government subsidies for religious pilgrimages, asserting that it should not be a priority for any administration, particularly in light of Nigeria’s current economic challenges. reports that the statement from El-Rufai comes amidst calls from civil society groups urging President Bola Tinubu to intervene in the preparations for the 2024 Hajj by subsidizing the fare for pilgrims. This plea arose following the announcement by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) regarding an increase in the 2024 Hajj fare.

Expressing his views on the matter via his X handle, El-Rufai emphasized the inappropriateness of government involvement in subsidizing religious pilgrimages, especially considering the prevailing economic climate.

In his X post, El-Rufai wrote: “Governments should have no business subsidising religious pilgrimages sha. Especially not in this current economic climate.”
