CUSTOM BOSS, HAMEED ALI, TO APPEAR BEFORE SENATE IN UNIFORM

President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly ordered Hameed Ali, Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) to appear before the Nigerian Senate on Wednesday, March 15, 2017.

The President issued the order to Ali Tuesday noon after his initial letter declining to appear before the Senate was read.

Ali has also sent out a second letter to the Senate on the controversial payment of Customs Duty by vehicle owners who do not have them, saying that the policy was being reviewed.

“May I respectfully refer to your letter dated 9 March and inform Your Excellency that the decision on payment of customs duties by vehicle owners who do not have them as prescribed by law is currently being reviewed. The goal of the review is to take a broad additional input from the stakeholders and the public. I will welcome the opportunity to avail the senate of our findings,” Ali wrote. (Source: The Cable)
