Senate Walks Out Hammed Ali, Asks Him To Come Back In Customs Uniform

The Senate today walked out the Customs Comptroller General, Hammed Ali from its chambers for not wearing uniform as directed. He was asked to return next Wednesday, March 22 in uniform.

Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekeremadu had earlier queried the Comptroller General for not wearing his official uniform.

Responding, Ali said the letter inviting him did not request that he should appear in uniform.

List of senators who insisted Ali should wear uniform:

Sen. Magnus Abe pleads with the CG Customs to wear his uniform to preserve the image of the Customs and perception of other institutions.

Sen. George sekibo says the CG Customs must re-appear before the Senate in his uniform.

Sen. Barbanas Gemade @BI_Gemade seconds and says it is respectable and important for the CG Customs to wear his uniform.

Sen B. Jibrin - "CG needs to go & apply the law of the land by wearing uniform before he addresses us, as stipulated in our constitution"

Sen. Ibn Na'Allah - The circular issued by the CG Customs stating to the Senate that he won't wear his uniform is derogatory.

Sen. Na'Allah cites Sectns 7,8 &10 of the Customs Act which states that the Customs shares same privileges with police and other institutions.

Sen. Yayi Adeola @YAYIAdeola says anyone can wear the Customs uniform and appear as the CG Customs.

  14. As much as i do not support insubordination to an institution or any person in authority, i believe that respect is reciprocal. The senate always flagrantly disrespect the president in a show of power. so it serves them right. Let them cite the specific section of the law that compels the CG of customs to appear before them in uniform.
