Government has deferred the issuance of a seven year bond to a later date.
The bond issue was originally scheduled to take place in May this year in the issuance calendar.
It is unclear why the bond issue has been postponed and exactly when it will be issued but there are reports that government cancelled the bond to avoid having to pay a high yield.
Government in March this year scrapped a five-year domestic bond worth 300 million cedis to avoid a higher yield and has delayed plans for a third Eurobond of up to $1 billion this year.
A press statement however from the bank of Ghana to banks, primary dealers and the general public said the issuance has been deferred by the ministry of finance.
The statement issued from the treasury department of the Bank of Ghana however added that a date for a new issuance would be announced in the near future.
When issued it will be the third seven year bond issued in the country, last year the country issued two seven-year bonds in August and November to raise GHC100 million each.
