Saraki Informs Senate About Customs Duty Policy

Senate President Bukola Saraki Wednesday officially informed his colleagues about the suspension of a customs policy that stipulates duty payment on old vehicles. Saraki equally told his colleagues Hammed Ali, the comptroller general of Nigeria Customs Service, would appear before the Senate on Thursday, and not Wednesday initially given for his appearance.

“I’ll make myself available whenever I’m needed in future,” Ali had said in his letter read by Saraki during Wednesday’s plenary.

The Senate and Ali has had a bitter disagreement over the policy and the insistence by the senators that he must appear before them in uniform, a decision Ali rejects.
