Francis Fadahunsi: Sack Hameed Ali Over Fraud, Incompetence by ijustdey: 1:58pm On Jan 13
The vice chairman, Senate Committee on Customs, Francis Fadahunsi, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, over alleged fraud and incompetence in the service.

Speaking in an interview with the Punch on Sunday, Mr Fadahunsi, the Senator representing Osun East Senatorial District, alleged that Mr Ali’s sheer incompetence and poor border control had resulted in the proliferation of small arms was now threatening the nation’s existence.

According to him, Customs boss allowed traders to smuggle contraband goods and items into the country, despite a ban by the Federal Government.

Mr Fadahunsi further said: “I told the Comptroller General of Customs, Col. Hammed Ali (rtd.), that his border management is poor.

“You don’t need to carry guns and start running after those people who have settled your boys. It is wrong, they paid bribes to the boys at the border and they are still running after them now.

“The border management is poor and it has failed. The same failure is seen at the ports, and that is the cause of port congestion.”

The senator said a competent professional should be in charge of Customs.
“Soldiers are not trained to generate revenue.

They are trained to buy ammunition and to kill.
“This man met more than 30,000 personnel in the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), and today they are not more than 15,000 left, he has sacked all of them.

“If you see the fraud in the Customs now, you will be shocked, but nobody must talk. They make noise to cover this up, but if you go into their books, you will be surprised.

“Customs headquarters was awarded for N2.7 billion then, but today the project is going to about N30 billion.

“The project has not been completed but the furniture contract for the uncompleted building has been awarded.

“Who is fooling who? If Mr. President sees what the man is doing, he will run out of the country.
“That is why I am saying that Mr. President should put a technical person from Customs there; if not, the man will run the place aground.

“The CG wants to recruit 3,200 persons and he paid N1.6 billion to a consultant to recruit 3,200 persons. The money is not for training but to just recruit them.

“I asked him if the Nigerian army ever used consultants to recruit personnel and he said no. He said Customs officers are corrupt and he is bringing in a consultant to recruit 3,200 persons and he will pay the firm N1.6 billion.

“Are you recruiting five million people? The N1.6 billion is even in the budget and that is one of the reasons the budget was being queried by the leadership of the Senate,” Mr Fadahunsi said.

The guy sound like his smuggled car was forced to cough duty fees. Anyone who knows basic government procurement will tell you many times the construction of a building and it's furniture contract are awarded simultaneously, he simply is saying many things without the proper context.

If you claim custom officials are corrupt, there is no doubt that is why the government had to shut the borders but to claim customs has not improved is a deadly lie from the pit of hell, we have witnessed improvement in duties collection and overall revenue generation from customs. But much has to be done in ending corruption by customs officials.

I wont say anything against this government here, the rate at which Yoru... Muslims attack anyone with contrary opinion including fellow Yoru..s is just appalling and they will quickly occupy page one.
Operation Amotekun should also focus on de-afonjarising these set of people blinded by religion to reduce sabotage by those whose allegiance is to the Sultan, even when the Sultan will never permit them to sight the moon and announce on Radio Nigeria Ibadan sad

This yoruba senator isnt talking true. You think we domt know that Customs boss isnt bribing you, hence the outburst. Am sure if he was greasing your palms with millions and billions, you wont dare bring this topic to public scrutiny.

He is just the vice chairman, has he asked his chairman if hameed Ali giving him bags of money? Am sure chairman of customs is a hausa fulani, and the crumbs aint reaching fadahunsi. Snitch senator.

Some of the comments above is the reason Nigeria is where she is. And we want to be developed, yet we are supporting mediocrity. Is anyone above the law or unaccountable?
