Lagos - Nigeria on Thursday successfully raised N85.17bn ($521.3m) in a bond auction with solid demand but was forced to pay slightly higher interest rate than the amount paid at the last such sale.
The bonds, which were in the 3- year and 10- year papers, were sold to local pension funds and offshore investors, reports National Mirror.
A breakdown of how the bonds were sold showed that Nigeria raised N30bn in the 3-year bonds and N50bn in the 10-year paper .
The interest rates which the country is paying on these bonds are, however, higher than what it paid during the last similar operation in May, 2014.
