“Interest is payable semi-annually, while bullet repayment (principal sum) is on the maturity date.

“FGN bonds are backed by the full faith and credit of the Federal Government of Nigeria and are charged upon the general assets of Nigeria.

“They qualify as securities in which trustees can invest under the Trustee Investment Act.

“They also qualify as government securities within the meaning of Company Income Tax Act and Personal Income Tax Act for tax exemption for funds among other investors.

“They are listed on the Nigerian Exchange Limited and FMDQ OTC Securities Exchange,’’ the DMO said.

It said that all FGN bonds qualify as liquid assets for liquidity ratio calculation for banks. (NAN)
