Settlement is expected the day after the sale. The bonds are re-openings of previous issues.
Nigeria, which has Africa’s biggest economy, issues sovereign bonds monthly to help fund its budget deficit, support the local debt market and maintain a benchmark for companies to follow.
At its last auction, it sold fewer bonds than it had planned after investors demanded higher yields to compensate for inflation
Nigeria expects a 2.36 trillion naira budget deficit this year, half of which it hopes to fund through local borrowing.
