|I was Not Appointed Customs DG to Wear Uniform – Hameed Ali, Replies Senate by Flex: 3:39 pm On March 10, 2017|
The Comptroller General of Customs, Hameed Ali has said he was not appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari to wear uniform.
The controversy between the Senate and Comptroller General of Customs, Hameed Ali have gotten more intense as Ali has replied members of the Senate who ordered him to appear before the house on March 15th in his official uniformas a customs officer, saying that he was not appointed to wear uniform.
In an interview with TVC today Ali is quoted as saying: “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.”
Yesterday, the Senate had passed a motion ordering Ali to appear before the house to explain the controversial new policy of Customs Service asking car owners to report to their offices to verify if the import duties for their cars were fully paid for.
The Senate is also angry with Customs officials over the recent trend of storming shops and storage houses to seize items believed to have been smuggled into the country.
Ali has never worn the Customs uniform since assuming office in 2015.
