- Nigerian Customs has launched an e-Auction platform where seized items would be sold
- The strategy which has just been adopted by the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) is to beat fake agents to their game
The Nigerian Customs has finally launched the e-Auction platform today July 3.
The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) through the process is set to beat fake agents to their game.
NAIJ.com had earlier reported that the portal is networked to designated banks to ensure money accruing from the auction gets to the Central bank of Nigeria Treasury Single Account for transparency and accountability.
NAIJ.com had reported that only proper pictures of the goods as well as detailed information about each will be uploaded to avoid and misgiving.
The report read: “After receiving the report, the comptroller-general of Customs, Col Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd), directed the auction committee to ensure that only proper pictures of the goods as well as detailed information about each are uploaded to avoid and misgiving.
“He further stressed the need for more weeks to enable interested members of the public to obtain their Tax identification numbers (TIN) from the federal Inland Revenue before the commencement date,” the statement obtained by NAIJ.com stated.

The statement said the platform which is highly interactive will only give access to holders of TIN.
“Such tax payers will log in, read the guidelines, pay the non-refundable one thousand auction fee and proceed to bid for the items on auction,” the statement added.
