Gbedu magazine reveals that the Nigerian Senate has told Customs Boss Hameed Ali to go and re-appear before it on Wednesday, March 22 in his uniform as Comptroller-General of the body.
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 time 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 institutions.
Ali decided to show up before the senators on Thursday after the upper house of legislature resolved to issue a warrant for his arrest if he did not show up today.
The senators on Wednesday, March 15, during a plenary unanimously passed a motion to issue the warrant that will compel Ali appear before it on Thursday, March 16.
The Senate decision came after Ali failed to make an appearance before the Red Chamber on Wednesday.
He had in a letter told the Senate that he (Ali) would not be able to appear before it because he was bereaved
