Why I Didn't Appear in My Uniform - Customs Boss, Ali Live in Senate

Hameed Ali arriving at the Senate this morning without his uniform

The Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Customs Service, Hameed Ali, who dared the consequences and arrived the National Assembly ahead of his hearing without his uniform, is currently facing hard time at the senate.

In a daring move, the Comptroller General of Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), Hameed Ali, has on Thursday morning, appeared before the Senate without his uniform despite an earlier notice directiong him to wear it. During the live plenary session which is still ongoing as press time, the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, asked Ali why he failed to appear before the lawmakers in uniform as requested.
According to Punch newspaper, the Customs DG said in the last letter from the Senate to him, that the lawmakers did not state that he should appear in uniform, adding that there's no law compelling him to do so.
Ekweremadu, however, said the last letter only served as a reminder on the first letter to Ali, in which the Senate asked him to come in uniform. 
The plenary session is currently ongoing. Click here to watch live online.
