The drama that has followed the summons issued to the Comptroller General (CG) of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Col. Hameed Ali (rtd.), to appear before it in his uniform over the retrospective vehicle duty verification policy and his refusal to honour the summons, on Wednesday culminated in the Senate declaring Ali unfit to occupy public office.
The senators further called for his resignation as the helmsman of the Customs Service, because he refused to show respect for the Senate despite being an appointee of the government.
The lawmakers also condemned what they described as undue interference and non-adherence to the principle of the separation of powers by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), whose letter had asked the Senate to stay action on the face-off with Ali.
The Senate resolved to write a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari to urge restraint of the AGF.
