Senate demands resignation of customs boss, Hameed Ali, says he is ‘Over-aged, Unfit’  

Nigerian Senate has demanded resignation of Customs Comptroller Generalm Hameed Ali over arrogance breach against Constitution of the land.

Senator Dino Melaye, On wednesday’s plenary during the briefing of the Comptroller General (CG) of Nigerian Customs Service Col. Hameed Ali (retired), has said that a court process cannot stop any form of Government from carrying out Constitutional duties.

The CG who was sent away last week for appearing in mufti, did not appear before the Senate today for legal reason.


A maritime lawyer, Muhammed Ibrahim, filed a lawsuit on Monday at the Federal High Court Abuja against the senate’s decision.

Dino during his presentation said that the position of the CG is a rank and anyone who occupies that rank is a civil servant as such Hameed “is not fit to be the CG of Customs” because according to the civil service rule he has passed the civil service retirement age.

He called on the president Muhammdu Buhari to adhere to the rule of Law.
