The Senate has insisted that the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Rtd Colonel Hameed Ali must appear before Lawmakers at the plenary on Wednesday, to explain the proposed Retrospective Policy on import duties on cars.
The Senate which is against this proposed policy had summoned the Customs CG to appear before lawmakers attired in the Customs uniform, to explain the reasons behind the policy.
However, the Customs CG has written a letter to the Senate informing lawmakers of his Inability to appear before the Senate at plenary on Wednesday, because of a routine management meeting of the Customs Service.
He has asked the Senate to postpone the interaction to a later time.
But the Senate has rejected the letter describing it as a slight to it and
insisting that the Customs CG must appear unfailingly at plenary on Wednesday.
