Politics 7 Senators That Called For The Resignation Of Customs CG, Hameed Ali



The Nigerian senate on Wednesday called for the resignation of Hameed Ali, comptroller-general of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS).

The senate also declared Ali unfit to hold public office and condemned a letter written by Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation (AGF).

Here are seven Senators that participated at today's plenary:

1. Senator Biodun Olujimi representing Ekiti south senatorial district has said that the action of Nigeria customs, Hameed Ali is a breach of Constitution and a grand display of arrogance.

2. Senator Abaribe Enyannaya representing Abia south senatorial district said Customs Boss, Hameed Ali made an obnoxious policy, it was in this process that we invited him to explain his policy.

He stated that it makes no sense for the CG @CustomsNG to rush to court to secure a deliberate injunction over his invitation by the Nigerian Senate.
