This research was designed to investigate the impact of fiscal policy and asset prices; an empirical investigation. A time series data of the all share price index as proxy for asset prices and the various sectoral expenditure on agriculture, education, transport/communication and the government recurrent and capital expenditures from 1985-2014 were sourced from secondary sources and was subjected to a multi regression analysis using the ordinary least square (OLS) estimator at 5% level of significance with the all share price index as the dependent variable. The results from the analysis showed that there exists a positive and statistically significant relationship between government expenditure on education and government recurrent expenditure and asset prices; that government expenditure on agriculture has a negative relationship but not statistically significant with asset prices, and that  there exists a positive relationship between governments spending on transport/communication and total government capital expenditures and asset prices but also not statistically significant and this findings is in line with other empirical studies such as Ardagna (2009), Fransisco and Alexander (2011); Luca and Richardo (2011) etc. The study therefore recommended that, Special attention should be given to the agricultural sector to ensure that funds disbursed from government purse are well managed and used for profitable ventures and that agriculturists should be trained to understand the benefits of the stock market and thus, they should be sensitized to invest in the stock market.
