The Debt Management Office in a circular issued said that the offerings consisted of N1.25tn with a maturity date of February 2031 and N1.25tn with a 10-year tenor.

FGN savings bonds are part of the domestic borrowing plan of the Federal Government.

The latest FG bonds have a face value N1,000, with a minimum subscription requirement of N50,001,000 and subsequent increments in multiples of N1,000.

Interest payments on FGN bonds are usually semi-annually.

In January, the FG had offered a two-year FGN Savings bond due January 17, 2026 at 11.033 per cent per annum and another three-year FGN Savings Bond due January 17, 2027 at 12.033 per cent per annum.
