Market Review: Nigeria Budget 2022 - Opportunities for Funding Through The Capital Market
This edition of the "Market Review" features Professor Uche Uwaleke as he speaks on "Nigeria Budget 2022: Opportunities for Funding Through The Capital Market".
According to him, the crude oil benchmark assumption of $57 per barrel is conservative but realistic for the country, considering the key developments in the international crude oil market.
He believed the Federal Government can leverage the capital market, through infrastructure bonds(including Sukuk) and Green bonds to finance the capital projects outlined in the budget.
Prof. Uwaleke said other areas the government can explore in partnership with the capital market include; privatizing state-owned enterprises through the market and securitizing key public assets like the airports.
