Femi Falana says senate has no authority to invite Hameed Ali

Human rights lawyer, FEMI FALANA has said that the Senate has no authority to invite the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, retired Colonel HAMEED ALI, to justify the agency’s move to compel all vehicle owners in the country to pay appropriate duties on their imported vehicles.

In a write-up on Sunday, FALANA argued that the invitation extended to ALI by the Senate was unconstitutional and also faulted the insistence of the Senate that he must appear before them in customs uniform.

He said if the Senate wanted to challenge the Customs’ policy on payment of exercise duties; it should invite the Ministry of Finance and not ALI.

You will recall that the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, retired Colonel HAMEED ALI briefly appeared before the senate last week and was asked to return this week for his failure to wear custom uniform.
