AGF Directs Customs Boss To Reinstate Sacked Gusau

By Kunle Olasanmi, Abuja

The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, has directed the Comptroller General (CG) of the Nigeria Customs Service, Hamid Ali, to comply with the judgment of the Supreme Court that ordered tAli to re-instate Comptroller Abdullahi Bello Gusau in the NCS.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN ), Justice Walter Nkanu Onnoghen had in April 2017 ordered the Customs to re-instate Gusau, who was wroungfully sacked after the court judgement which was unanimous.

The same court order was 34 months ago handed down (in July 2014) by three justices of the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division that the NCS failed to comply with before the apex court affirmed the judgment of the lower court that reinstated Gusau into the Service.

Unhappy with the manner in which he was sacked, Gusau had approached the high court but he lost. Dissatisfied with the judgment, he appealed to the Court of Appeal which ordered his reinstatement, a ruling that was affirmed by the Supreme Court last April.

The appellate court ordered the NCS to allow Gusau to resume back to work and maintain his position as Comptroller of NCS, to be paid all benefits and emoluments and also to enjoy his lawful promotions.

Gusau was  on January 1, 2000 promoted to the rank of Comptroller, before his sack in December 21, 2009 when he was purportedly retired from the Service.His mates then are now wearing the rank of Deputy Comptroller Generals (DCGs) while others retired as DCGs two years ago.
