Uja Tor Uja, intimated the selected Air Carriers that the Commission is set to ensure that Nigerian Pilgrims gets the best treatment and comfort they deserve and as such he charged them to live up to expectations, According to him, "NCPC is not indebted to any Air carrier and as such the favour should be reciprocated".
