Dzamesi made known yesterday in Abuja during the arrival of the seven-man delegation visit to Nigeria.
The Hon. Minister stated that the delegation who is on a three-day working visit to Nigeria will be carrying out as part of its pilgrimage events lined up to achieve the success Nigeria has achieved over the years.
According to him, “we decided from our ministry and informed our president, Nana Akufo –Adu who is much interested in pilgrimage.
“Nigeria started pilgrimage sometimes back, we have been very interested in the way the country has gone about the administration of pilgrimage to the holy land. Last year we decided to embark on general pilgrimage to Israel and other holy cities, and we have been able to do first pilot programme.
“Ghana and Nigeria have the same situation, and if our brother has taken the lead, to be able to solve certain problems, we don’t have to start by fixing those problems, but to understudy and learn from their challenges.”
