“The amount allotted culminated in N81.72 billion and N88.92 billion for the first and second bond offers.

“The bids received for the 10-year bond ranged from 10.80 percent to 13.25 percent, while the 20-year bond ranged from 11 percent to 14.50 percent,” the result said.

Meanwhile, the Director-General of DMO, Patience Oniha DMO, during a presentation at an executive course on budgeting and fiscal responsibility organised by the Fiscal Responsibility Commission in Abuja, has said the federal government cut down on borrowings by increasing revenue generation and improve on expenditure.

In her paper titled “Debt Sustainability Challenges and Strategic Revenue Mobilisation Initiative”, Oniha explained that because the federal government had run deficit budgets for many decades, borrowings from external and domestic sources are unavoidable.

She said: “A budget may be surplus, balanced or deficit. Nigeria has run deficit budgets on a consecutive basis for decades.

“The financing of the deficits through borrowing from local and external sources is the principal reason for the growth in debt stock and debt servicing.

“One way to reduce budget deficits is to grow revenues; the other way is to prioritise expenditure and cut waste and leakages.”
