Hameed Ibrahim Ali,the Comptroller-General of Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, arrived the National Assembly without putting on his complete Customs Uniform as directed by the Senate.
Ali who arrived at around 9.30 am, went straight to the office of the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, dressed in white Cafta, white cap and black shoes to match. He also went to Enang’s office at 10.36am shortly after Ekweremadu and other principal officers entered the chambers.
He shunned the invitation by the Senate that he should appear before it in complete Uniform to explain the agency’s earlier planned policy on duty on vehicles and other recent acts of the Customs.
It would be recalled that for shunning the directives of the Senate it was directed that the Customs should suspend the proposed vehicle duty ultimatum due to begin on April 12, the Senate had on Tuesday openly declared war by summoning the Comptroller -General to appear before it.
