The senate resolved that Ali should resign his post after he again failed to appear before the lawmakers as directed by the upper house of legislature on Thursday, March 16.

Senators argued that Ali's refusal to show up because of the letter the clerk of the Senate received from the office of the attorney-general of federation Abubakar Malami directing the lawmakers to leave Ali alone because the matter was in court amounted to interference in its duties.

Leading the debate, Senator Dino Melaye said the letter was an affront.

He said: "What we heard from the attorney general is an insult.

"How can the attorney general that we screened in the House tell us how to carry out our duty. This is the first time in the history of black Africa that the attorney general is telling the SDenate what to do.

"This is not an injunction but a mere court process by a third party that ran to court and the attonrney general wants us to stop our work.

"Our rule says that a matter is already in court cannot be discussed here but not that a matter on our floor, an individual quickly ran to court … haba!"

Melaye also noted that based on the provisions of the Customs Act and the Pension Reforms Act, Ali was too old to hold a public office because he was above 60 years old and had worked in public service for over 35 years.

Hameed Ali is above 60. He is not qualified to hold the position of the Customs comptroller general.

Abaribe moved that Ali be declared unfit and told to resign

Senator Abaribe says "Lest we forget" Customs made an obnoxious policy, it was in this process that we invited him to explain his policy.

The enemies of Nigeria are in the presidency. They are trying to distract the president from doing his job. They are giving him the wrong advices and throwing obstacles in his way in order to disrupt his administration.

For instance when the President went on vacation for about 49 days, there were no Boko Haram attacks but immediately he returned, they have started the attacks again to distract the president.
