The Comptroller General, CG of the Nigerian Customs Service NCS, Col. Hameed Ali Rtd on Saturday in a low key ceremony married a new wife, Hajiya Zainab Abdullahi in Kano state.
This came nearly two years after, the Custom Boss lost his wife Hajiya Hadiza Jummai Ali who passed on in Abuja on the 29th October, 2018 leaving behind four children for the Custom boss..

It is believed the lockdown caused by the Covid 19 pandemic is likely the reason a high profile wedding of Ali’s type went relatively unpublicized and with low turnout.
Before being appointed as CG of NCS by President Muhammadu Buhari, Ali had previously served as military administrator of Kaduna State from 1996 to 1998 during which the late Jummai reigned as the first lady.
With this, Hameed Ali has finally filled that gap left by the age-long partner and former wife Hajiya Zainab Abdullahi.
