Customs Boss, Hameed Ali, Holds Secret Meeting With Senate President, Bukola Saraki

The Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Customs Service, Hameed Ali, Tuesday evening held a closed-door meeting with Senate President Bukola Saraki, hours after it appeared a showdown was imminent between the Senate and the retired army colonel.

   ''He (Mr. Ali) has come and gone.'' A Senate President’s office insider told Premium Times at 6:40p.m.

Earlier on Tuesday, Mr. Ali had written the Senate, notifying the lawmakers of his intention not to appear before them as scheduled because he had to attend a customs management meeting slated for Wednesday, same day he was expected at the Senate.

But the lawmakers passed a resolution, reaffirming last Thursday’s decision that Mr. Ali must appear in uniform by 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

But afterwards, he wrote a second letter, this one directly to Mr. Saraki, spokespersons for the Senate President confirmed.
