The Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission has disclosed plans to airlift about 20,000 intending pilgrims to the Holy Land this year during the October/December pilgrimage.
The Executive Secretary of the NCPC, Rev. Tor Uja, disclosed this recently in Makurdi at a reception in his honour for his new appointment as the Executive Secretary of NCPC by strategic Think Tank group.
Uja, through a press release made available to journalists in Abuja, explained that last year, the Commission airlifted about 8,000 pilgrims to Israel, a number which, he said, would be improved upon this year.
