Your letter didn’t say I should appear in uniform, Ali tells Senate

Customs CG Hameed Ali
The Comptroller-General, Nigeria Customs Service, Col. Hameed Ali (retd.), on Thursday appeared before the Senate in a white tradition attire despite the lawmakers’ insistence that he appear at the chamber in uniform.

Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, asked Ali why he failed to appear before the lawmakers in uniform as requested.

The Customs DG said in the last letter from the Senate to him, the lawmakers did not state that he should appear in uniform.

Ekweremadu, however, said the last letter only served as a reminder on the first letter to Ali, in which the Senate asked him to come in uniform.
