Customs E-Auction: 174 Emerge Winners As Platform Witness 6,938 Bidders In 48 Hours

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) said on Thursday that 174 persons emerged winners following the resumption of its e-auction process that started on Monday and ended on Wednesday.

In a press statement issued yesterday by the National Public Relation Officer of the service, Joseph Attah informed that the first 48 hours bidding period had 198 vehicles uploaded with 6,938 persons who bided while 174 emerged as winners.

Attah said the winners have five days to make payments and 14 days from the day of payment to proceed and take possession of their own items, or forfeit them.

He said failure to pay within five days will lead to revocation of the item and deactivation of the defaulter's TIN from further participation in the Customs e-auction process.
