International Flights To Resume In Weeks – Federal Government

The Federal Government on Thursday  disclosed that  airports would be reopened to international flights in weeks. 

The Debt Management Office (DMO) of Nigeria has said that the country plans to raise between 360 billion naira and 450 billion naira ($1.18 bln-$1.48 bln) in sovereign bonds maturing between five and 20 years in the third quarter.

The DMO said it would auction between 90-120 billion naira in the five-year note and 135-165 billion in the 10-year and 20-year debt between July and September.

Nigeria’s economy issues bonds each month to help fund its budget deficit, support the local debt market and maintain a benchmark for companies to follow.

Nigeria expects a budget deficit of 2.36 trillion naira this year as it tries to spend its way out of a recession.

It expects to raise money to cover more than half the gap from the local market.
