Auction reports from Nigeria don’t tend to feature too much in ATG, but maybe that could change thanks to the National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers (NAVA).

NAVA have announced they are building international ties with the organisation of a three-day training programme for delegates from the Certified Institute of Auctioneers of Nigeria.

They are hosting 24 members to take part in a three-day training programme from April 15-17 in Birmingham.

Day one is based around chattels auctioneering and will be run by senior NAVA members Nigel Hodson (from Peter Francis) and Philip Allwood (Moore Allen & Innocent).

The training programme put together by NAVA has resulted in significant interest from delegates of the Certified Institute of Auctioneers of Nigeria and they have requested that NAVA stage another two events this year.
