THE Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday evening held a closed session with the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs service, retired Colonel Hameed Ali.
This is coming on a day Ali had written the Senate to say he would not honor the invitation extended to him to appear at plenary in uniform.
The senators however insisted he must appear in uniform on Wednesday at the Senate plenary.
In what appeared a dramatic turn around, Ali sought an audience with Saraki for about 50 minutes.
The meeting came hours after Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa.
Although, the details of the closed session between Saraki and Ali were still sketchy as at press time, but sources said it was to get a soft landing for the Customs CG, who some senators have vowed must go if he failed to heed the summons and appear in uniform.
