$4 Billion Eurobond to Deepen External Reserves, Build Confidence in Medium-term – Ecobank CEO
The Cheif Executive Officer and Managing Director of Ecobnak Nigeria, Patrick Akinwuntan, has said the recent $4 billion Eurobond issued by the Federal Government of Nigeria will deepen external reserves and allows more confidence in the medium-term planning in the private sector.
Akinwuntan, who was assessing the global market as Nigeria announced its multibillion dollar Eurobond offering, during an interview on Arise TV in Lagos, said such loans would give a fresh breath to the economy because when the country takes on Euro bond that portion is reduced from its financing or public sector debt.
He advised those approaching the international debt market to have clarity of purpose and state their strengths and weaknesses.
Akinwuntan said the economy is showing strong trends owing to investments in infrastructure such as road and rail transportation, which is giving a lot of positive impact to the economy, adding that the private sector is also making improvements in power sector, telecoms, and information technology.
He said: “In the last two quarters, we have seen the global market rebounding from the very deep end of the COVID-19 that plagued 2020. We have seen, since the arrival of vaccines, the gradual opening of the global economy such that there is much more optimism in the market because we have learnt that shutting down the economy is not the best way to handle an epidemic and we have seen support from sovereigns, ensuring that there is steady growth within the various economies; supply chain has opened and we have seen in sub-Sahara Africa renewed interest in the Eurobond market in the international debt market. We have seen Benin republic, Ghana, Cote d’ivoire and Kenya all are approaching the market with significant success.
“Over subscription in each of them ranges from 200 per cent to 300 per cent and an all-high in Kenya close to 600 per cent or six times over subscription. This is a positive period for major economies like Nigeria, which is the lead economy in Africa, to take advantage and invite the global community to hear our story, invest in us and get good returns.”
