“Since the reopening of the Nigeria Customs Service e-auction platform,, some complaints and inquiries have been pouring in, especially from those who tried unsuccessfully due to either invalid Tax Identification Numbers (TINs), inability to service e-wallet, poor network at their locations or any other reason which are all outside the jurisdiction of the Service. Some of these complainants appeared to have questioned the integrity of the e-auction process.”

Attah said the e-auction was largely successful, as a lot of persons still participated despite the complaints by a few individuals.
