The acting executive secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission, Mrs Esther Kwaghe, has said that the dream of the commission is for every Christian to be able to participate in holy pilgrimage to Israel at least once in a life time.

The head media, NCPC, Mr Celestine Toruka, who spoke on behalf of the commission’s boss during the ceremony for pilgrims who had completed their pilgrimage circle in Israel, said she was satisfied with the conduct of the first batch of Plateau Pilgrims, which made it possible for the commission to achieve zero abscondment during the recent pilgrimage exercise to Israel.

She was also impressed that the commission was able to achieve zero morbidity and mortality.

Mrs Kwaghe assured that the commission would continue to ensure that the welfare of the Nigerian pilgrims is guaranteed.
