CBN to borrow N952bn in three months

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has said that it was planning to borrow N952.04 billion ($3.02 billion) with new issues of Treasury Bills from September 15 to December 1, 2016.

The CBN in its latest Treasury Bills issuance calendar said it would sell N264.47 billion worth of three-month bills, N204.88 billion of six-month bills and N482.69 billion of one-year bills, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

The Federal Government is expected to borrow about N900 billion from the local market to bridge its budget deficit, which is estimated at N2.2 trillion in the 2016 budget.

According to the Debt Management Office, the Federal Government is also planning to borrow N120 billion ($387 million) in local-currency denominated bonds at an auction on September 14.

The DMO had said that it would raise N40 billion each from debt maturing in 2021, 2026 and 2036, using the Dutch auction system.

All the bonds are re-openings of previously issued debt. The CBN has said it was planning to borrow N1.77 billion through Treasury Bills in the last three months of the year.

In its fourth quarter Treasury Bills issue programme released on Monday, the CBN said it would raise about N815.37 billion, comprising 91 days, 182 days and 364 days debt instruments.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Once I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the identical comment. Is there any method you can take away me from that service? Thanks!

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I do know it was my option to learn, however I really thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could repair in case you werent too busy in search of attention.
