I Was Employed To Work, Not To Wear Uniform – Customs Boss Ali replies Senate

In an apparent response to the Senate’s directive that he should appear before them in uniform, the Comptroller General of Nigeria Customs, retired Col. Hameed Ali, has said that he was not employed to wear uniform.

He told TVC on Friday that rather, he was appointed to work effectively and deliver.

The Senate had ordered Ali to appear before it on March 15th in his official uniform as a customs officer.

He was summoned by the fuming senators over the new order by the Customs Service for all old vehicles to pay their customs duty.

Customs offered a 60 percent rebate for vehicles from 2015 below.

“No! I was not appointed Comptroller General of Customs to wear uniform. Does Uniform work or the person behind the uniform?

"If we suspect that smuggled items are taken into your house, we have the right to cordone that house and go in to search.

“Am I doing my job or not? I think that should be what should worry the National Assembly,” he said.

NASS should engage the Comptroller General of Custom in more serious & germaine issue in the activities of the customs rather than leaving the proverbial leprosy untreated to focus on the treatment of ringworm.

Thank you my dear custom boss. Elements of corruption are full of national assembly. I don't know what wearing uniform has to do with competency.

Where in the constitution was it stated that a Custom Boss apponted must wear uniform. He was never a custom personnel and his boss knew that b4 he called him 2 service.

Retired soldiers are not to wear any other uniform.
Have you seen Buhari/Obj as democratically elected president, wearing military uniform; unlike the way Goodluck use to wear it?

Wearing uniform does not deprived you of any thing but to avert problem wear your uniform on that day you are summoned.
