Are you saying I can still buy treasury bills even if I do not have up to #50,001,000 through the banks with the new CBN policy?


Although I am waiting for the maturity to see what amount will be paid back to me. I invested 250k for a91day TBILL but got a credit alert of 435.47naira for upfront interest payment meanwhile the rate was at 13.50%as at Mar 17, 2017.


Are you sure you bought treasury bill? You may probably be running fixed deposit. Treasury bill has the following characteristic.
– Interest is paid upfront (don’t yield interest)
– Tender is between Monday to Wednesday, issue and payment on Thursdays 1:30pm
– Zero tax on interest
– Short time maturity
– Use as collateral.
If you fixed 250,000,000 at 9% for 91 tenor, your interest a day will be (N250,000* 9/100/365)
= 61.64, for 91 days is N5609.59 but will be paid monthly amounting to N467.47 with a withholding tax of 10%. Your net interest is N 420.72.


It is Treasury Bill . the alert you got is the balance on the roll over ( Principal +Interest) which is not up to N1000
