Despite current has both magnitude and direction, but still it is a scalar, Why? Some says it does not obey the vector addition law. Pliz explain in detail

Current possesses both magnitude and direction, even then it is a scalar because current does not follow the axiom vector addition.
For a physical quantity to be a vector, in addition to direction, it must also follow the axiom vector addition.
