Close sources in government reveal that the Hajj Board was left in a gross debt of GH¢23m under Mahama's administration during last year's Holy Pilgrimage.
According to the shocking revelation, Flynas, formerly Nas Air, a domestic and international low-cost airline based in Saudi Arabia, is owed the highest amount out of the larger sum.
The development has seen close sources of the NPP administration warn that if the debt is not cleared, this year’s pilgrimage could be hampered.
“I think that it is proper we wait for the new government to take over so we explain and move on from there. Of course there is some debt, but when the time comes we will explain to them and they will explain to you. They know how this debt comes about; it’s not something that is alarming at all,” outgoing chairman of the National Hajj Committee, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdul Rauf Tanko, has stated.
