The Executive Secretary Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam has said that the Commission is ready to explore more Holy Sites. He disclosed this during a courtesy call by the Afriworld International Network Limited at the NCPC Corporate headquarters, on Thursday, 25th November, 2021.
The NCPC boss informed that the Act that established the Commission enables it to explore Holy sites around the world. In his words, “the Act that established us does not limit us to Israel, Rome and Greece but has afforded us the opportunity to explore other Christian Holy sites around the world”.
Rev Pam further informed that the Commission had just concluded its 2020 pilgrimage exercise to the Kingdom of Jordan.

He intimated that the NCPC has plans to explore the Holy Sites in Turkey and Greece and as such he added that the Commission would begin work in earnest to make it a reality. In his words, “your visit came at a time when the Commission is planning to explore the Holy sites in Turkey, we will work together with your team to make this vision a success”.
