Hameed Ali May Be Arrested Over ‘lopsided' Northern Appointments by sambisamam: 7:15am On Feb 25, 2016

The House of Representatives Committee on Public Petitions has threatened to order the arrest of the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Col. Hameed Ali (retd.).

The Federal Lawmakers, on Wednesday, said it would be forced to take such an action should the Customs Boss continue to refuse to honour an invitation to appear before lawmakers.

The committee is investigating Ali over a petition alleging the occurrence of ‘lopsided’ promotions and posting of personnel within the Customs.

The petition, which was sent to the House by the Ohanaeze Youth Vanguard, alleged that the abnormal promotions and posting commenced after Ali assumed leadership of the Nigeria Customs Service, in 2015.

According to the President of the Ohanaeze Youth Vanguard, Igweka Okonkwo, the Customs boss had ignored many officers from the South East when approving promotions and posting of personnel in 2015 when he took over the mantle of leadership.

Chairman of the committee, Uzoma Nkem-Abonta, lamented the fact that Ali had repeatedly failed to honour several invitations sent to him by the committee in respect of the pending petition.

Nkem-Abonta said: “We have invited him repeatedly and he has been giving excuses. This is not a military era. He has now been summoned to appear before the House on March 9. If he doesn’t show up, a warrant will be issued for him to appear here.”

Speaking further, he described Ali’s conduct as being insensitive to the complaints lodged by aggrieved Nigerians.

“These are Nigerians who have complained to us and it is our duty to address the issue,” he added.

Why is it always the South East particularly after the Buhari presidency?
I think these guys have developed strange eyes to see things others do not see.
From Onyeka Onwenu observations to Ohaneze youth Vanguard.
My question is that why are others not complaining about those stuff including the minority tribes? Should we say is a grand conspiracy by all including the much coveted south southern minorities to relegate them or a supposedly victim mentality cultivated over time.

When people complain and point these glaring inequalities out, rather than calmly ascertain the merits of such complaints and demand for corrective measures or just keep quiet and let those affected make their voices heard, some spineless oafs will start talking about how Igbos always play the ethnic card or always claim victimisation.

Same thing keeps happening yet u expect them to keep quiet and accept crumbs when they're entitled to more for purposes of fairness. They get tired and decide to get out of the sham of a union, they get branded as traitors seeking to divide an entity. Where was the unity in the first place?

The truth must prevail.

BREAKING: 5 Deputy Comptroller-Generals Of Customs Resign

Why won't they resign? You bypassed them because you know that the next in line to take over by seniority was DCG Nwosu...you panicked, "he is Igbo and he can't be in such a position." Instead you went as far as...fear of Igbo... bringing a Northern geriatric retired army general, an outsider...something never done before... to make sure an Igbo man doesn't clinch that seat. THIS COUNTRY IS IMPLACABLY EVIL AND GOD IS ANGRY; INTENSELY ANGRY. The plan is to now assemble new DCGs with a northerner as senior to take over from the Geriatric general...he will resign within a yr or two to pave way for the prospective senior northerner DCG; you want to bet? All these while, I have been wondering why an outsider was brought in...not a DCG as customary procedure until a custom officer friend relayed me the gist of the inner politics. Is it a coincidence that 99% of all past comptroller general of customs are of Northern extraction?

This is why Nigeria can not develop.
Sometime ago,I was in a federal govt agency for some services. A particular igbo woman was busy attending endlessly to the numerous crowd that were there while another colleague of hers,a 'hajia' in hijab was just showing up and disappearing without sitting down to attend to us. I turned to the igbo woman and asked her if the hajia wasn't employed to do the same job cos some of us needed her to sit down to help reduce the queue. The igbo woman answered "they are the rulers of this place,they are above the law,if I try being that lazy,I will be sacked. I still have children in school".
In a federal govt agency?
This is obtainable across the nation. Once a sector becomes very profitable,instead of employing good hands to help it grow,they will send in their semi illiterate brothers to go milk it dry. And that's how a laudable sector will become a failure and the nation will be the loser at the end

As long as they're within this geographical space, they will continue to press for fairness and equity. If the Nigerian government were smart enough, it should be pursuing the way of equity and fairness; that will only give the Biafran agitators reasons to have some faith in this nation.

Is it not only logical that u for once stop and ask yourself, why is it that these same people that ur likes call proud and chest-beaters keep complaining about one particular thing? Could it be that there is really something wrong? Is there anyone that just likes to complain for the hell of it? For once, stop and think.

Exactly! Yet some ne'er-do-wells turned around to say that she complained that she was sacked because she was Igbo. A woman that is already assured in her success would not have made the kind of statements she made unless she was sure of herself but wicked souls chose to label her. I always say that Nigeria has a date with the truth.

You be hausa, just the way Junaid mohammed and Arewa were shouting during GEJ's time even though he favoured the north more. The SE/SS will put every appointment made by this Fulani/Hausa administration under the microscope. You wanted the destruction of the country during GEJ's time, we will help you destroy it.
