Executive Secretary, Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission, NCPC, Rev. Yakubu Pam has said that a new bilateral relationship has been established between Nigeria and the Kingdom of Jordan.
Pam disclosed this when he paid a courtesy visit to the Minister of Tourism and Antiques, His Excellency Mr. Nayef Alfayez at the Ministry of Tourism and Antiques, Amman, Jordan.
According to the NCPC boss, Nigeria is open to learning from Jordan in the area of information technology and agriculture.
“I believe that Nigeria has so much to learn from Jordan and Jordan has a lot to learn from Nigeria, too,” said Pam.
He disclosed that the Commission has approved the Kingdom of Jordan as one of its pilgrimage destination nations.
Speaking further, the executive secretary said, “The Commission in past had three pilgrimage destinations which are Israel, Rome, and Greece but now Jordan has been officially added to our pilgrimage destinations, this is only possible because you opened your doors to us.”
The NCPC boss thanked the Minister for all the support and co-operation the Jordanian government accorded the Commission to ensure a hitch-free pilgrimage exercise, especially in the area of visa procurement.
In his response, Alfayez thanked the Executive Secretary and his team for their visit.
He commended the Nigeria Government and the NCPC boss for considering the Holy sites in Jordan as a viable pilgrimage destination.
Alfayez explained that the greatest value they have cherished as a nation is the peaceful co-existence between the Christians and the Muslims.
“We work together as brothers and we accept each other not minding our religious differences,” he said.
The Minister informed that the Jordanian Government and the Ministry of Tourism will do everything possible for NCPC to experience a hitch-free and successful pilgrimage exercise.
In his words, “we are ready to clear any obstacle to make this year’s pilgrimage exercise great.”
He commended the pilgrims for conducting themselves well.
Also, the Nigerian Ambassador to Jordan, Amb. Faruk Yabo thanked the Minister of Tourism and Antiques for their cooperation and support to the success of this pilot scheme pilgrimage.
Yabo however, solicited more cooperation in the area of visas procurement to afford more Nigerians the opportunity to visit Jordan and to strengthen the bilateral relationship between the two countries.
