Hameed Ali, comptroller-general of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), says the All Progressives Congress (APC) government “cannot move forward” because 50 percent of those in the current administration are from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ali said this on Friday while speaking at the official commissioning of the national headquarters of Buhari Support Organisations (BSO) in Abuja.

The customs CG said the Buhari administration ought to not have allowed PDP members to call the shots.

He said some of those who played major roles for the party to come to power in 2015 had not been fully appreciated.

“Today, with all sense of responsibility, I want to say that we have 50 percent of PDP in our government. How can we move forward with this load? How can we achieve our target with this load? It is a spoilt system and so,” he said.

“When you come in, you shake off everybody and bring in your own. That is what democracy is all about.

“Today, we have members of PDP calling the shots. That is what we will begin to fight for, we will fight for our right position, our vision and our mission for this government.

“I will, therefore, ask my colleagues of the BSO to go back to the study room. This is a commission, but it is also the beginning of the fight for good governance. We must get back to the trenches, draw our own battle plan and battle line.

“I enjoin you that the same commitment we had in 2015, I employ you to bear with us and commit yourself to a better future for Nigeria. We will be calling on you from now on and we will be working day and night. “We must do so because we want to save our name and the name of the president for what he is doing.”

Ali who had a face-off with the senate earlier in the year is not known for making political statements.

The PDP has argued that the APC would not have ended its 16-year reign without the defection of some of its key members.
