The debt office, in a circular issued on Monday showing the bond sale programme for Q1 2020, said the instruments would be offered in three different maturities; 5-year, 10-year and 30-year.

In the calendar sighted by Business Post on Wednesday, the DMO said the FGN bond auctions will hold on January 22, February 19 and March 25, 2020.

In the first exercise scheduled for next Wednesday, the debt office plans to sell from N45 to N55 billion worth of the 5-year paper at 12.75 percent, another N45 to N55 billion worth of the 10-year paper at 14.55 percent, and N50 to N60 billion worth of the 30-year note at 14.80 percent.

At the next month’s auction, the DMO said it would offer for sale N45 to N55 billion worth of the 5-year paper at 12.75 percent, N45 to N55 billion worth of the 10-year paper at 14.55 percent, and N50 to N60 billion worth of the 30-year note at 14.80 percent.

After the sale, investors/subscribers are issued a certificate which shows details of what they bought and at maturity, they are repaid by government.
