"I Won’t Appear Before You On Wednesday"... Customs Boss Ali writes Senate

A serious political drama is in the making. Colonel Hameed Ali is not a man who's looking for job. In fact it took time before he resumed after he was appointed by President Buhari. His own is to deliver, but Dino Melaye and some set of Senator want to prove that they can force him to wear uniform.

The appointed Comptroller General of Nigeria Customs Service, Hameed Ali, has told the Senate that he would not appear before the lawmakers on Wednesday as it coincided with the routine management meeting of the NCS.

The Customs boss asked the upper chamber of the National Assembly fix another date for his appearance. Ali’ s letter was read to lawmakers at the plenary on Tuesday.

The letter was signed by an Assistant Comptroller General.

The Senators blasted Ali for relegating the Senate and for failing to personally sign the letter.
