According to the DMO, the bonds will be auctioned on June 23. They also have the same date for settlement.

For re-openings of previously issued bonds, (where the coupon is already set), successful bidders would pay a price corresponding to the yield to maturity bid that cleared the volume being auctioned, plus any accrued interests on the instrument, the DMO stated.

It added that all FGN bonds qualified as liquid assets for liquidity ratio calculation for banks.

The FGN bonds are backed by the full faith and credit of the Federal Government of Nigeria and are charged upon the general assets of Nigeria, the DMO stated.

It would be recalled that in May, the DMO offered similar bonds of N150bn bonds for subscription which comprised of three bonds worth N50bn each.

They were a 10-year reopening bond offered at the rate of 16.2884 per cent and to mature in March 2027; 15- year reopening bond offered at 12.5 per cent and mature in March 2035; and a 30-year reopening bond offered at 14.8 per cent and maturing in April 2045.
