Why I won’t honour Senate summons, by Customs CG
The Comptroller-General (CG) of Customs, Col Hameed Ali (rtd) has said, he would not appear before the Senate today following a court order, which limited him from honouring the lawmakers’ summon.
Addressing State House correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Aso Rock, Abuja yesterday, the customs chief ?said ?the case is already subjudice.
According to Ali, “The case is in court already. Somebody has sued us. I have gotten my writ of summons and they said the status quo ante should remain, which means nothing moves until the court makes a pronouncement.”
The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Malami (SAN) yesterday advised the Senate and the Customs CG to stay action on the issue.
