The governor said Lagos State had the highest number of intending pilgrims in Southern Nigeria, urging them to be united and imbibe the tenets of Islam.

The governor stated that embarking on holy pilgrimage was one of the fundamental tenets of islam, saying they should be mindful of  their interactions with fellow pilgrims and others in the holy land.

Ambode said he had approved various welfare packages to make them more comfortable when performing their Islamic rites.
