Sukuk (Islamic Bonds) in Nigeria

Wole Soyinka High School – Proceed of Osun Sukuk
Suzuki (Islamic bonds) Islamic bonds, structured in such a way as to generate returns to investors without infringing Islamic law (that prohibits riba or interest). Sukuk represents undivided shares in the ownership of tangible assets relating to particular projects or special investment activity (from Financial Times Lexicon)
From Europe to America to Asia, sukuk is growing and it is improving developments and FGN and states can tap in like Osun did and FGN recently.

Various types of Sukuk
There are various types of Sukuk structures relating to the nature of the underlying asset. The most commonly used is where the Sukuk relates to a partial ownership of an asset (Sukuk al-ijarah). Other types of these bonds relate to partial ownership in in a debt (Sukuk murabaha), project (sukuk al-istisna), business (Sukuk al-musharaka), or investment (Sukuk al-istithmar).

There are five important differences between Sukuk and traditional bonds:
1. Sukuk indicate ownership of an asset. Bonds indicate a debt obligation.
2. The assets that back Sukuk are compliant with Shariah. Assets backing bonds may include products or services that are against Islam.
3. Sukuk are priced according to the value of the assets backing them. Bond pricing is based on credit rating.
4. Sukuk can increase in value when the assets increase in value. Profits from bonds correspond to fixed interest, making them Riba.
5. When you sell Sukuk, you are selling ownership in the assets backing them. The sale of bonds is the sale of debt.
The main advantage of Sukuk over traditional bondsis that their value increases in relationship to the assets backing the Sukuk certificate. If the asset raises in value, then the value of the ownership of that asset, backed by the Sukuk, increases. Bonds do not have this characteristic. It is not possible to raise the main debt in a bond and increase in revenue from a bond is the direct result of the fixed interest rather than in any kind of tangible increase in value or productivity.

Osun Sukuk for Education
Osun issued the first Islamic bond in Nigeria. Osun is one of the largest sub Saharan Africa’s largest economy and cocoa producing state in the South West of Nigeria. Osun received N11.4bsubscrition in November 2013 for seven years. It is the hope of government that Sukuk will provide means to access large amount of long term investments.

  1. Türbanlı hamile kadın ve kocası, ev bakmak için dışarıya çıktılar.
    Ev fiyatları biraz yüksek olunca, çaresiz bu adama hamile kadın her ay düzenli olarak
    gelip vermesi gerekiyordu. Kocası onu sikilirken izledi, oda
    çok keyif aldı bu durumdan.
