The Bishop, while commending State government for the support given to the Board towards the success of the preparation, urging the pilgrims to cooperate with medical team handling the exercise by providing necessary information, saying all hands must be deck to ensure that all intending pilgrims has a hitch free pilgrimage.
He, however, explained that the Board had earlier undertaken a sensitisation tour to all local government areas across the State to campaign for sponsorship from churches, corporate organisations and philanthropists, just as he added that the pilgrims had been spiritually drilled during the exercise and counselled to be good ambassadors of the State.
