ABSTRACT
This study examines the relationship between corporate governance and firm performance in
Nigeria. The study was able to determine, among other, how corporate governance has
dominated policy agendas in developed market economies for more than a decade. The data
used for this study were derived from the audited financial statements of the firms listed on the
Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) between 2006 and 2010. The sample of the firms were selected
using the combination of non- probability sampling technique (firms with the required
information were initially selected) and stratified random technique (firms were then selected
based on their sectoral classification). A total of 5 non- financial firms were finally used as
sample. Panel data methodology was adopted because it combined time series and cross
sectional data. The method of analysis is that of multiple regressions and the method of
estimation is Ordinary Least Squares (OLS). The value of the R2
for the two analyses (PM on
other variables on one hand and ROE on other variables on the other hand) reveals that the
explanatory variable explains 90.42% and 78.67% of the variation in the dependent variable. It
is recommended that there is need to examine the relationship between firm performance
measures when leverage is introduced in order make the outcome of the research to be more
robust.
