    03 July 2017: Fitch Ratings has assigned Nigeria’s USD300m 5.625% senior unsecured bonds a final rating of ‘B+’. The final rating is the same as the expected rating that Fitch assigned on 14 June 2017

    The final rating is in line with Nigeria’s Long-Term Foreign-Currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) of ‘B+’. The Outlook on the IDR is Negative.

    The rating is sensitive to changes in Nigeria’s Long-Term Foreign-Currency IDR.

    On 24 January 2017, Fitch affirmed Nigeria’s Long-Term Foreign-Currency IDR at ‘B+’ and revised the Outlook to Negative. The Long-Term Local-Currency IDR was also affirmed at ‘B+’ with a Negative Outlook.
