The Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Col. Hameed Ali (Rtd) has taken a new bride Hajiya Zainab Abdullahi. The wedding ceremony, devoid of fanfare because of the COVID-19 pandemic, was held over the weekend, two years after the death of his former wife.
Hameed Ali’s first wife, Hajiya Hadiza Jummai Ali died in Abuja on October 29th, 2018 at the age of 53 years old. According to Tribune, Hajiya Ali left behind her husband, Hameed Ali, and four children.
Born 15 January 1955, the current Customs CG previously served as Military Governor of Kaduna State from 1996 to 1998. After retirement, he became secretary of the Arewa Consultative Forum – a political and cultural association of leaders in Northern Nigeria.
The wedding ceremony to usher in the new wife, which reportedly took place in Kaduna, where Ali was once a governor, was devoid of fanfare because of the social distancing rules introduced by the Nigerian government to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
Ali, 65, who was spirited from retirement by President Muhammadu Buhari to his new position as the NCS boss, on August 27, 2015, had previously served as military administrator of Kaduna State from 1996 to 1998.
