…as NCS Says  CGC Alli Did Not Award 191 Contracts  in a Day

Ali-Hameed-NCS-BossThe House of Representatives has set up a sub-committee to conduct further investigation on unspent funds in the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) for a period of 10 years,  sequel to the inability of its Committee on that issue , to conclude investigation on the matter   for which it invited the Comptroller General of the Service, Colonel Hameed Ali(rtd) .

The House Investigative committee on unspent funds played host to the Customs Comptroller General yesterday, with the focus of carrying out investigation in the Customs ,  for a period between 2010 to 2020.

But the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Customs , Deputy Comptroller ,Joseph Attah in a Statement, said  that while  the CG  of Customs appeared before the committee, he was asked questions on contracts that were even awarded before his appointment as CGC.

The PRO alleged that ‘’there were obvious mix and discrepancies in the investigation, hence the committee suggested and set up  a sub- committee ,which included  members of the National Assembly  and the Service  to iron out the grey areas before the presentation of their report’’.

He thus expressed surprise that some mischief makers through online platforms, went  to town with twisted narrative that ,191 illegal contracts were awarded by the CGC in one day, adding that , the information was not  true, and does not  represent the true position of what transpired at the committee’s seating.
