The Nigeria Customs Service on Friday said the service would unveil its revamped e-auction platform on Tuesday.
Maiwada said the move was in pursuit of its commitment to continuously improve the service.
He added that the move aligned with the guidelines in the newly enacted NCS Act, 2023, “showcasing the service’s dedication to efficiency and fairness,”
The NCS had in 2017, started the use of electronic platforms to conduct its auctions as part of measures to ensure transparency in the sale of seized goods. The platform was later suspended by the service due to complaints of inability to access the platform by prospective bidders.
However, Maiwada in the statement said the new platform was an upgraded version of the previous portal, “designed to provide Nigerians with an equal opportunity to participate,”
“Since its re-launch, the platform has recorded impressive results, including. 1137 number of bids, 1099 registered applicants, 652 successfully paid administration fee, 100 vehicles uploaded on the window, 86 vehicles bided and won,” he added.
