What you should know

The auction results display continued investors’ appetite for longer-tenured bonds in Nigeria due to higher yield rates, even as Nigeria is yet to turn the corner concerning inflation.

With a drop in 2024’s budget deficit to N9.18 trillion from 2023’s budget deficit of N11.34 trillion, it is expected that there will be a drop in the amount raised through FGN bonds. For example, the N418.197 billion allotted in FGN bonds in January 2024 is a 36.9% year-on-year decline from the N662.617 billion raised in January 2023.
