FOREIGN CAPITAL AND CAPITAL MARKET DEVELOPMENT IN NIGERIA
ABSTRACT

This study examines the impact of foreign capital and capital market development in Nigeria. In the light of the empirical review and other discussions, a number of questions arose as to whether there is relationship between foreign capital and the development of Nigeria capital market: as well as to ascertain the relationship between foreign capital and Nigeria Gross Domestic Product. Using the Ordinary Least Square (OLS) regression technique with the aid of computer software for a 30 – year period (1981-2011) time series data, the empirical findings revealed among other things, that foreign direct investment inflow has a positive but insignificant impact on capital market development in Nigeria. The study recommends, among others, that the Nigerian government should encourage the inflows of foreign portfolio investment and contact policy institutions that can ensure the transparency of the operations of foreign companies within the economy.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1        BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
The role of capital in the production process and economic performance of a nation has long has recognized. Capital provides the impetus for the effective and efficient combination of factors of production to ensure sustainable economic growth. Moreover, the effective utilization of productive resources accumulated over time would determine the pace of growth of an economy.
Growth in productive activities and its distribution determined the social well being of the population. Capital formation, however, can only be achieved through conscious efforts at sowings mobilization and accumulation of resources by both the public and private sectors of an economy. The unique position of the capital market could therefore be appreciated from this perspective. Financial markets generally provide avenue for sowings of various tenors that are made available for utilization by various economic agents.
The capital market, which is a major segment of financial markets provides a setting through which medium to long-term resources are provided for productive utilization (Babalola and Adegbite, 2009).
Donwa and Odia (2010), opine that, the capital market has been identified as an institution that contributes to the socio-economic growth and development of emerging and developed economics. This is made possible through some of the vital roles played such as channeling resources, promoting reforms of modernize the financial sectors, financial intermediate capacity to link deficit to the surplus sectors of the economy, and a veritable tool in the mobilization and allocation of savings among competitive uses which are critical to the growth and efficiency of the economy.
Idolor and Eran (2011), buttress that the impact of the financial sector which comprises of the capital and money markets in an economy cannot be over emphasized. It plays a very vital role in the general performance of the economy. It also basically serves as a lubricant that keeps the wheels of the economy turning as well as affects the political and socio-cultural system of the country.
May, Adedinran and Elizabeth (2012), opine that the capital market is the prime motor that drives any economy on its path to growth and development because it is responsible for long term growth capital formation.  The money market only complements the capital market by providing the necessary working capital to support gross fixed capital formation. Unfortunately, performed its natural function of funding investment. One of the major indicators of capital market development is the proportion of long-term fixed capital that is raise in relative to the gross domestic production.
According to Singh (2009) foreign capital has played a significant role for every nations economy, regainless of its level of development for the developed countries, it is used to increase accumulation and rate of investments to create conditions for more intensive economic growth.
Osinubi and Amgtuanyeddiwe (2010), add that in most economics however, domestic private investment has proven to be insufficient in giving the economy the required boost to enable it meet its growth target because of the mismatch between their capital requirement and sowing capacity. Foreign private investment, thus, augments domestic resources to enable the country carry out effectively her development programmes and raise the standard of living of her people.
In the light of this, the researcher intends to empirically investigate the impact of foreign capital and the development of capital market.
