The West African oil producer’s eurobonds rose up to 1.1 cents on the dollar, having plunged from a recent peak on August 1. The note maturing in 2038 rose the most, up 1.177 cents to 73.16 cents at 0926 GMT.

Edun, one of Tinubu’s closest advisers and a figure investors hope will help to steer Nigeria onto a more reformist, market-friendly path, had long been tipped to take up the post of finance minister.
