The Senate has also urged the NCS to outrightly cancel its proposed payment of import duty on old Vehicles.

The resolutions of the Senate followed the failure of the CG to appear before it on Wednesday as expected, after he was walked out of the senate chambers for not conforming to its directive to appear in uniform.

The Senate also resolved to write President Muhammadu Buhari to caution the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami to respect the principle of Separation of power.

He was urged to restrain the AGF from unconstitutional interference in the work of the National Assembly.

The Senate condemned the AGF for attempting to derail it from carrying out its functions, just as it described his letter advising the senate to desist from further attempt to summon the Comptroller General of Customs and also urging him to wear uniform as an insult on the National Assembly.

Malami had written the clerk of the Senate on Tuesday, demanding that the senate put on hold further actions against the CG of customs as the matter had been taken to the court.
