ABSTRACT

The study was carried out to determine the influence of Foreign Direct investment (FDI) and Domestic investment (DI) on the economic growth of Nigeria. The study employed Augmented Dickey-Fuller test to test for time series property of the data. Johansen co-integration was also examined and consequently error correction model was employed. Ordinary Least Square (OLS) method was used in the data analysis. Findings show that indeed FDI impacts significantly on economic development. It was also seen that domestic investment didn’t impact significantly in the economic growth of Nigeria during the period under review. The coefficient of determination (R2) shows that the independent variables explain up to 59% of the dependent variable (RGDP). The data for this study were secondary data from the Central Bank of Nigeria. On that basis of the above findings, we made the following recommendations among others: That Government should make available adequate infrastructure and regulatory framework that will be conducive for doing business in Nigeria. There also need for regular power supply because it is the most important infrastructure required for doing business in any economy. Therefore, government should endeavor to ensure constant power supply so as to reduce the cost of doing business in Nigeria which no doubt will encourage domestic and foreign investment in Nigeria.
