As part of measures to finance budget deficit, the federal government on Friday sold a total of N190 billion ($673.76 million) in treasury bills.
Reuters reports fixed income dealers saying that the maturities on the bills rang from three months to one year, with yields broadly flat.
The central bank sold N28 billion of the 3-month treasury bills at 9.98 percent compared with 9.99 percent at the June 22 auction and N42 billion worth of the 6-month bill at 12.24 percent against 12.30 percent previously.
The bank sold N120 billion worth of the one-year paper at 14.99 percent, the same rate as at the last auction.
The measure is also aimed at helping manage liquidity in the banking system.
