A breakdown of the sale showed that N25.46 billion worth of 185-day bill was traded at 17.80 percent stop rate, while the N32 million worth of 94-day bill was sold at 16 percent stop rate.
Business Post further reports that the treasury bills market today was scantily traded as a result of the liquidity in the market.
