No law mandates me to wear uniform — Customs DG

The Comptroller-General, Nigeria Customs Service, Col. Hameed Ali (retd.), has told the senate that no law mandated him to wear uniform while discharging his duties as the Comptroller-General of Nigeria Customs Service. 

Ali who was compelled by the Senate on Wednesday to avail himself in his uniform depicting his rank as the DG, appeared in mufti instead.

Opposing Hameed’s stand, Senator Ibn Na’Allah stated that such reply is derogatory, citing sections 7,8 and 10 of the Customs Act which stated that customs share the same privileges with police and other security institutions.

Senator Jubril confronted the Customs boss and told him to apply the law of the land by wearing the customs uniform before addressing the senate.
