APC to intervene in Customs boss, Senate face-off

by Dolapo Adelana

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it would intervene in the ongoing face-off between the Comptroller-General of Nigeria Customs Service, Hameed Ali and the Senate.

The party made this known in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, in Abuja.

The party said that it took the decision after observing the controversy that had trailed the invitation extended to Mr. Ali, a retired army colonel, by the Senate and his appearance at the chamber on Thursday.

“We have watched the issues with growing concern and the expectations that they would be resolved in a manner that would be agreeable to all the parties involved.

“However, we wish to state that at this point, we have found it necessary to intervene.

“Accordingly, the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun will lead the party’s peace mission to the leadership of the National Assembly and the concerned party member,’’ the statement said.

The party expressed confidence that its effort to broker peace would resolve the matter amicably.

The Senate and Ali are at loggerheads over his refusal to appear before the upper legislative chamber dressed in the uniform of the service.
