Our relationship with Nigeria’s debt capital markets commenced in December 2016 with the issuance of the Company’s debut bonds. This landmark transaction evidences our commitment to nurturing this relationship and adopting the debt capital markets as a fundamental part of our funding strategy on our journey towards being the largest supplier of energy for a brave new world”.
