Senate declares Hammed Ali unfit to hold public office
The Senate on Wednesday declared the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Colonel Hameed Ali (retd), unfit to hold public office in the country.
The upper chamber also called for the resignation of Ali as the CG with immediate effect.
The Senate resolution was sequel to the letter written to it by the Attorney General of Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, on why the Customs CG cannot appear before the Senate in uniform.
Malami had in the letter written to the Senate said the Customs CG cannot appear before the Senate in uniform because the matter is in court.
The letter written by the AGF infuriated the senators as those who spoke lambasted Malami for interfering in a matter that concerns the National Assembly.
Speaking, Senator Dino Melaye said no court process can stop lawmakers from performing their functions, adding that the letter is an insult to the National Assembly.
