In March, the central bank plans to raise 221.91 billion naira in 91-day, 182-day and 1-year treasury bills, while in April, the regulator will auction 334.25 billion naira worth of treasury bills of the same maturities.
The central bank will issue 278.38 billion naira worth of the debt note in May and 137.97 billion naira worth of the 3-month, 9-month and 1-year worth of the bills in the first week of June.
