NCPC boss urges pilgrims to practice good culture of Holy Land in Nigeria

The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam, has urged Pilgrims to practice and share the good culture they got from the Holy Land in Nigeria.

Pam made the call at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja while receiving the first batch of Christian pilgrims who left Abuja on June 15, to Israel and the Kingdom of Jordan.

Pam said that the testimonies of the pilgrims “have been fantastic’’.

“The Pilgrims are excited about their experiences in both pilgrimage destinations, Israel and Jordan.’’
