Gradually, CATBAN is unearthing the discreet reasons why the NAHCON Chairman dropped 33 companies and engaged only 8 companies in 2017. Document available revealed Shuraka’a Alkhair Group Co Ltd a company alleged to be fronting for the Chairman has been the beneficiary of over 65% contracts and services in Hajj operations under his tenure. Categorically speaking, our dependable source clearly explained why the company has been enjoying the highest number of contracts in Hajj Operations was because of the fact that former VP Namadi Sambo brought the company and Chairman of NAHCON to Hajj Commission. In our findings, Shuraka’a Alkhair is owned by a Nigerian but operated by a man from Niger Republic who only has a Power of Attorney to run the business. In the recent past Hajj Operation, this company alone was awarded the job to accommodate & feed thousands of Pilgrims from 20 States of Nigeria. When the Chairman was questioned on “why Shuraka’a Alkhair alone with 20 States?”, he claimed that the States choose their contractors not Chairman NAHCON. Whereas, NAHCON is imposing this same company. Details submitted through CATBAN petition to the Senate Adhoc Committee and Anti-Corruption Agencies.
