The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), John Kennedy Opara, has said that the commission would subject all participants in this year’s pilgrimage to online medical examination.
This, as announced by Opara during the inauguration of the medical team for the 2015 pilgrimage to Jerusalem, does not exclude anyone, regardless of their residential location.
Speaking on the 14-man federal medical committee for the 2015 Christian pilgrimage,
Opara said members were appointed on merit and competence, stressing the need for them to be faithful, loyal and committed. Addressing the team, he said, “God is the one that has called you to do this assignment and if you are faithful, the Lord will lift you up.”.
