A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State, Chief Sunny Onuesoke   has faulted the statement of the Attorney -General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, for comparing the office of the President of Nigeria and that of  the Senate to that of the  Comptroller-General of Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali on the issue of wearing uniform.

In the letter, the Attorney- General was said to have disclosed that there was no way the Senate could force Ali to wear uniform when President Muhammadu Buhari does not wear military uniform as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. He was alleged to have accused Senate President Bukola Saraki of not wearing his complete legislative regalia in line with legislative conventions.

Onuesoke who spoke to journalists at Abeokuta, Ogun State, during climate change workshop    said if truly the Attorney-General made the statement, it meant that   threat to Nigerian democracy was  being enlarged daily by the government.

He explained that it was out of place and disrespect for the Attorney –General to compare the office of the President of Nigeria    or that of the President of the Senate  to Comptroller-General of Nigeria Customs Service.
