Col Ali’s Action Is Affront On The Senate – Wamakko

By AMOS DUNIA, Abuja – Per Second News Former governor of Sokoto State, Senator Aliyu Wamakko on Wednesday said the actions of the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), Col Hameed Ali towards the Senate, is an affront on the legislative arm of government.

 

He therefore declared that the Senate would no longer tolerate affronts on its constitutionally assigned power and responsibility.

Wamakko, who was responding to the actions of Col Ali towards the Senate, said the upper legislative remains unanimous that the action of the retired military officer was an attempt to undermine the Senate and by extension, the legislative arm of government. 

Senator Wamakko clearly stated that Col Ali is not and cannot be above the law stressing that the Customs boss cannot also claim to love Nigeria more than the majority of Nigerians, whose mandate, members of the National Assembly exercise. 

According to him; “Today, the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria reaffirmed its commitment to the people of Nigeria, whose mandate we exercise as their elected representatives. 

“The Senate will continue to act as always in the best and overall interest of Nigeria and Nigerians. Col Ali’s action is an affront on the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended. 

“Under a military government Col. Hameed Ali would not dare refuse the instructions of his Commanding Officer. He would definitely be charged for treason if he attempts such an act and court martialed, Wamakko added.
