The Senate has called for the resignation of the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Colonel Hameed Ali (rtd), saying he is unfit to hold any public office.

The Comptroller-General of Nigerian Customs Service, Col. Hameed Ali (rtd), on Wednesday failed to appear before the Senate, contrary to a directive of the upper chamber.

The Senate had earlier asked Ali to appear before it in Customs uniform to explain the rationale for directing that vehicle owners should be pay duty on their cars.

But, on Tuesday, Ali revealed that he would not be at the Senate, citing advice from the Attorney-General of the Federation as the reason for his decision.

He said that he had written to the Senate on the development, explaining that a case had been instituted in the court on the matter.
