The Nigerian Customs Service has launched an electronic auction platform where seized cargoes forfeited to the Federal Government could be sold to Nigerians through a transparent bidding process.

While unveiling the e-auction platform at the headquarters of the NCS, the Comptroller-General, Col. Hameed Ali (rtd.) described the development as a game-changer for the service saying it would bring about a regime of transparency and consistency in the disposal of seized vehicles to Nigerians.

He further stated that the approval of the electronic platform was done based on the conviction that it would assist in checking the abuse, which the manual auction process was subjected to in the past.

“It’s been a long walk to an era of a system that will ensure transparency and accountability in such a way that leaves nobody in doubt that NCS has the capacity to discharge its responsibilities with utmost sincerity,” he said.

The CGC added that the launch of the e-auction portal was within the law of the Service which gives it the powers to dispose seized and overtime cargoes after they must have undergone a judicial process.

Present at the event were members of the e-auction committee made up of representatives from the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Standards Organisation of Nigeria, and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, among others. (TV360 Nigeria)
