Nigerian Customs has announced the revamping of its e-auction platforms designed to promote transparent disposal of seized and overtime goods.

In a press statement published on the verified X handle of Nigerian Customs on Friday and signed by Abdullahi Maiwada, Chief Superintendent of Customs, it was noted that the “upgraded version of the previous portal is designed to provide Nigerians with an equal opportunity to participate.”

The statement reads, “In pursuit of its commitment to continuous improvement, the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) unveils its revamped e-auction platform on Tuesday, January 16, 2024.

“This strategic move aligns with the guidelines outlined in the newly enacted Nigeria Customs Service Act, 2023, showcasing the agency’s dedication to efficiency and fairness.

“The new platform, accessible at https://auction.nigeriatradehub.gov.ng, is an upgraded version of the previous portal designed to provide Nigerians with an equal opportunity to participate.

“The NCS emphasizes that successful bidders should promptly download their winning certificates through the provided link in the confirmation email.

“Subsequently, winners are required to present the certificate where the goods are domiciled, and the clearance process is expected to be done within seven days.

“It is also pertinent to note that the auctions are periodic and open every Tuesday from noon to 6 p.m., providing the public with regular opportunities to select and bid for desired items.
