According to the Debt Management Office of Nigeria, the Federal Government at the end of the first quarter of 2018 paid N642 billion in debt servicing on domestic debt instruments alone. Thereby reflecting a 49.8 % and 51% astronomical increase in debt servicing compared to the previous quarter and year, where debt servicing stood at N 429.75 and N424 billion, respectively.


The interest on recurrent expenditure streaming from domestic debt alone in the first quarter of 2018 made up 32% of the total amount forecasted for debt servicing in 2018 and 52% of the actual amount incurred on domestic  debt servicing tagged in 2017.

This capture both the huge absorption of domestic debt over a relatively short horizon in attempt to reflate the economy, coupled with the high cost of short term domestic debt instrument. This could pave the path for a hard-pressed position for the fiscal authorities, especially if non-oil revenue is deeply undercut. 


Although it is expected that the fiscal authority will circumvent the domestic money market in attempt to dampen the cost of debt servicing in the period to come. However, with the on-going jolt in inflation premium abroad and a rise in effective interest rate in the United States, the expected long term rate on external debt will increase, pushing the cost of external debt up. This scenario is already being witnessed as growing indifference manifest in debt instrument of emerging economies.  Obviously, there is a need to prioritize spending properly, strengthen fiscal housekeeping and improve the efficiency in revenue collection especially in the informal sector; in order to avoid being caught up in a debt over hang or run into a liquidity drought.
