In a statement dated Tuesday, January 25, 2022, the debt office noted that the bonds would also be listed on the Nigerian Exchange (NGX) Limited to provide “a diversified pool of financial offerings for investors.”

Last September, the DMO sold the $4 billion Eurobond in three tranches of 7 years of $1.25 billion due September 2028 at 6.125 per cent, 12 years of $1.50 billion due September 2033 at 7.375 per cent and 30 years of $1.25 billion due September 2051 at 8.250 per cent.

It was observed that the subscription level for the Eurobond was $12.2 billion, making it one of the continent’s most successful financial transactions of 2021.

The paper was sold to raise funds for the implementation of the 2021 Appropriation Act and it subsequently boosted the external reserves of the nation.
