The Chairman of the National Hajj Board, Sheikh Ibrahim Cudjoe Quaye has said pilgrimage to holy land of Mecca will cost Muslims GHC 15,000 this year.

He said, the ideal cost should have been GHS19,500 but stated that government will absorb the difference as part of efforts to support Muslim pilgrims.
