Nigeria plans to access foreign loans, Eurobonds tap possible -DMO

LAGOS, June 19 (Reuters) – Nigeria plans to access cheaper foreign loans to help part fund its 2019 budget and tap Eurobonds if necessary to cover any shortfall, the debt office said in a statement on Wednesday.

The emailed statement comes a day after the head of the debt office said the country had no plans to return to the international market this year. She made the comments at a conference in Nigeria’s commercial capital, Lagos. (Reporting by Chijioke Ohuocha Editing by Alexis Akwagyiram; Editing by Toby Chopra)
