President Tinubu To Launch Diaspora Bond In 2024

Nigeria is planning to issue Diaspora Bonds later this year to attract funds from Nigerians living abroad.

The bonds aim to leverage the financial resources of the diaspora for national development. This initiative is expected to boost foreign exchange reserves and support economic projects.

The Federal Government, through the Ministry of Finance, has outlined the strategic importance of these bonds. Finance Minister Wale Edun emphasized that the bonds are designed to tap into the substantial financial resources of Nigerians living abroad¹. The funds raised will be directed towards critical infrastructure projects, healthcare, education, and other sectors that require significant investment.

In addition to boosting foreign exchange reserves, the Diaspora Bonds are expected to provide a stable and attractive investment option for Nigerians abroad.

The bonds will offer competitive interest rates and long-term maturity, making them a viable choice for investors looking to contribute to Nigeria's development while earning returns on their investments¹.

This initiative is part of a broader effort by the Nigerian government to diversify its revenue sources and reduce reliance on oil. By engaging the diaspora community, the government aims to create a sustainable financial inflow that can support economic growth and stability. The success of this bond issuance could pave the way for future financial instruments targeting the diaspora, further strengthening the economic ties between Nigeria and its global citizens¹.
