The Nigerian Senate tells Customs boss to re-appear in uniform (Video)

The Senate had earlier admitted Ali into the upper house of legislature’s chambers on Thursday, March 16 and questioned him on why he has been defying its directive to dress properly for his appearance.


Hameed Ali said he was not aware of any law that states he should wear uniform but he is consulting with his lawyers over the matter.

But the senators were not pleased with his submission.

Although Senator Magnus Abe pleaded with him to wear his uniform, other senators disagreed.

Senator George Sekibo moved that Ali be sent out of the chambers to return at a later date but in his uniform. He was seconded by Senator Barnabas Gemade, who said the CG had to present a good example to other leaders of various government institutions and agencies in the country.
