Customs Generates Over 49 Million Naira On E-Auction
Money is flowing like
water at the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS.
About a day ago, the agency announced that it generated 486.7-billion-naira revenue from January to June 2017.
But more continues to flow in, as it has announced again that it has generated 49 million naira from the electronic auction platform it launched few weeks ago.
NCS sells seized vehicles on the e-auction platform and has since launch recorded 254 winners across the country.
The Service Public Relations Officer, Mr Joseph Attah, who announced this in a statement on Friday in Abuja, said that 6,560 persons were able to recharge their e-wallet of 1000-naira administrative fee and participated in the bidding process.
Attah explained that with 19 commercial banks hooked to the platform, interested bidders now have the option of choosing banks nearest to them for ease of transactions.
“Four weeks after the
official launch of the NCS e-auction platform, https: app.trade.gov.ng/eauction
by the Comptroller-General of Customs, retired Col. Hameed Ali, a total number
of 254 winners have emerged across the country with over 49 million naira already
generated," Attah said.
Attah said that the platform was secured, provided opportunity to generate more revenue for government and gave equal opportunities to all interested persons.
