Customs Boss To Senate - I Was Not Appointed CG of Customs To Wear Uniform


The bad blood between National Assembly and Comptroller General of Nigeria Customs Service has never been this perilous before. Recall that the Senate ordered the CG of Customs, Hameed Ali to appear before its hallowed chambers on 15th of March 2017 in full custom uniform to be questioned on the kind of policy he is melting out at Nigerians.

The Custom boss have responded via an interview with TVC today and he said and I quote:

"I was not appointed to wear uniform but to do his work effectively". "No! I was not appointed Comptroller General of Customs to wear uniform. Does Uniform work or the person behind the uniform?
Senate, in the last preliminary hearing unanimously agreed to order Ali to appear before the house to explain the controversial new policy of Customs Service asking car owners to report to their offices to verify if the import duties for their cars were fully paid for. 

According to Customs, defaulters would have their cars impounded. The senate is also angry with Customs officials over the recent trend of storming shops and storage houses to seize items believed to have been smuggled into the country.

Is should also be noted that Hammed Ali has never worn the Customs uniform since assuming office in 2015.

Watch the interview below...
