The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has attributed the inability to access the e-auction platform to technical problems.
This was disclosed by the NCS spokesperson, Joseph Attah.
He ascribed the inaccessibility to technical problems with the portal.
The portal was launched on Tuesday and was barely up and running for 24 hours before it crashed. Attah said the challenges have been resolved and access to the portal is now possible.
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.
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.
