The Senate on Wednesday declared the embattled comptroller-general of customs, Hameed Ali, unfit to lead the Nigerian Customs Service and called on him to resign.
The Senate resolution was reached following a motion by a senator from Abia State, Eyinnaya Abaribe.
The Senate also urged the customs to cancel the retroactive policy on duties collection immediately, saying duties should only be collected on point of entry.
The Senate also condemned the attorney-general of the federation, Abubakar Malami, for trying to stop Senate from performing its constitutional duties.
It also said a letter containing all resolutions attached should be written to the presidency and that the resolutions be sent to House of Representatives for concurrence so as to ensure it will be a National Assembly decision.
