The Debt Management Office (DMO) says it will reopen federal government of Nigeria (FGN) bonds valued at between N70 billion to N80 billion on September 19, 2022.

The development follows a review of its bonds issuance calendar for the third quarter of 2022.

A bond is a fixed income instrument that represents a loan made by an investor to a borrower — typically corporate or government.

According to the NAN, the agency’s revised calendar is scheduled to raise about N720 billion through some reopened FGN bonds.
