Hajj 2019: Paul Biya offers the sum of 1 billion Fcfa to Muslims

In a Minat press conference on May 8, 2019, Paul Atanga Nji says that the price of Hajj 2019 will remain unchanged; 2 242 000 Fcfa as in 2018.

Despite the increases in international prices; and this thanks to the grant of 1 billion granted by President Paul Biya.

Paul Atanga Nji, already told the Ct colleagues in an interview that "The organization of Hajj concerns the head of state at the highest level. In 2018, we scrupulously respected the instructions of the Head of State who were in the direction of lowering the costs of the trip and then to grant a better accompaniment to the pilgrims. This year, we are in the same logic. Pilgrims will be accommodated 500 meters from the Great Mosque in Medina. In Makkah, Mecca, they will be housed less than two km from the Kaaba. In addition, this year, as in the past, Cameroonians will be in air-conditioned tents with mattresses in Mina and Arafa, which is not the case for other countries. "

The Head of State in 2019 offers the sum of one billion francs to Muslims. What compensation is made to other religions and spiritualities that do not go to Mecca?
