The Senate has asked the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service, Col. Hameed Ali (retd., to appear “in plenary in uniform” on Wednesday “unfailingly.”

Members of the Senate are pushing for drastic action against the NCS and its D-G over the refusal to suspend action on the proposed clamp down on vehicles without duty payment, as ordered by the legislature.

The senators vent their anger during the plenary on Thursday.

Part of the actions proposed by the senator is to summon Ali to appear before all the lawmakers in the chamber in Customs uniform, which the NSC boss had refused to wear.

The lawmakers also called for Ali’s removal of he failed to comply with directives from the Senate.

Misplacement of priority. He putting on custom uniform or not will neither add nor subtract anything to his job nor will it force a change of custom policies.

It baffles me in this country, when some individuals are handling a government agency or parastatal and managing it well and the head is receiving good will and enconiums this senators and reps will begin to develop bad belle asking stupid questions.

I Pity this country

I hope Osinbanjo remove this military man who was appointed based on ethnic sentiment by Buhari because next in line was a Southerner and replace him with the most senior Custom comptroller as has been done for over 30yrs.

I support this. If he can't, he should quit office!

I saw the man going home the other and they wanted to chance me. His convoy was trying to push me to the right shoulder and off the road. I steadied my hand waiting for them to try any nonsense. Baskat!

So much for a man that was rumoured to have only 504. APC and scam.

Senate and misplaced priorities. If mufti was against the law, Col. Hamid would've been prosecuted and dismissed long ago. Same thing if his appointment was unconstitutional.

That said, DG Customs has done very well. While you are suffering in town, rice and poultry farmers are smiling to the bank.

We would rather pay duties to Benin Republic and then cheat ourselves by smuggling items into Nigeria. Now someone has the courage to correct that anomaly and Senate, which shd be protecting our economy, is working against it.

Check well and you will realize that they are only protecting themselves because most of their luxury SUVs were smuggled too, or brought in using ridiculous waivers from our ineffectual somborri.

It makes absolute sense that anybody who has brought in a vehicle without paying proper duty shd go and pay and collect original paper. No sane person can argue with that. Giving one month Grace is a sign of Col Hamid's magnanimity. Ideally, the vehicle shd be confiscated and the importer prosecuted.

Una want make soup sweet, but una still de thief meat wey suppose enter am.

Ask any customs officer, and they will tell you that the man is doing very well in cleaning up an otherwise, very rotten system. That's why customs officers no de 'hammer' again like before.

To those claiming that na same customs allow these smuggled cars, pls note thay the vehicles in question were mostly smuggled before he came into office. Since Col. Hamid assumed office, customs officials at borders de fear to try nonsense.

OluwaHamid, carry go jare.

This man is a slowpoke walahi. My question is "who assist in smuggling doz cars into Nigeria or issuing fake custom papers"? The answer is clear - custom officials. Now should the general populace suffer for their corrupt act? DG wake up man!
