Nigerian Customs e-auction site: official explains why portal is not functional

A spokesman of the Nigeria Customs Service, Joseph Attah, has said some people cannot access their e-auction portal because of technical problems.

The Nigerian custom e-auction portal was launched on Tuesday by the Comptroller-General, Hameed Ali.
However, many interested bidders lamented the unavailability of the platform.
Attah said the challenges had already been resolved and many people were already accessing the platform.
“Every batch has 48 hours, the first 48 hours elapsed at noon on Wednesday, July 5, and the system completely locks out everybody, automatically sends mails to the winners.
“That is why some bidders are beginning to experience problems and by Monday, July 10, the system will open again for new set of bidders”, he said.
On designated banks, Attah said for now, it was only Jaiz bank that was on the platform because other banks were having Interswitch issues.

“These other banks will soon be on board as soon as they rectify the issues,” he said.
