Nigeria’s President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, on Monday directed a jocular remark at the Comptroller-General of Customs Service at the National Assembly in Abuja.
While speaking at the public hearing on tackling smuggling by the Senate Committee on Customs, Excise and Tariffs at the National Assembly, Abuja, on Thursday, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, replied a jocular remark at the Comptroller-General of Customs Service, Hameed Ali.
According to a report by Premium Times, Saraki said that Ali could be allowed to appear before the Senate for official engagement in casualwear, if he was able to end smuggling.
He said; “To the Comptroller General of Customs, let me say on a lighter note, that once you end smuggling, even if you want to wear jeans and T-Shirt, I will move the motion that you should wear jeans and T-Shirt.
“But on a serious note, this issue is very important. Let us all work towards ending this menace once and for all.”
It was gathered that at the hearing, Saraki exchanged pleasantries with Ali, who had brushed aside the Senate’s resolution he wear official customs uniform to attend its hearing in March.
