The second offer is a three-year savings bond due to mature on Jan. 17, 2027, at an interest rate of 12.033 percent per annum.

The opening date for both offers is Jan. 8, while the closing date is Jan. 12; settlement is Jan. 17; coupon payment dates are April 17, July 17, Oct 17, and Jan. 17.

“They are offered at N1,000 per unit subject to a minimum subscription of N5,000 and in multiples of N1,000 after that, subject to a maximum subscription of N50 million.

“Interest is payable quarterly while bullet repayment is made on the maturity date,’’ the DMO stated.

“They qualify as securities where trustees can invest under the Trustees Investment Act.

“They qualify as government securities within the meaning of the Company Income Tax Act and Personal Income Tax Act for tax exemption and pension funds, amongst other investments,’’ the DMO stated.
