The auction exercise will allow them to sell a number of vehicles and goods which have not been cleared at the ports for too long to the public.
In a statement issued by the Commissioner-General of GRA, Emmanuel Kofi Nti, he said that the auctioning of the overstayed goods and vehicles are part of strategies put in place to make some revenue before the end of the year.
He added that this is in accordance with Sections 93 (1) and 59 (2) of the Customs Act which mandates them to carry out that act.
He indicated further that the auction will be on a cash-down basis and the public will be expected to partake in the activity.
