ABSTRACT
This paper “exchange rate fluctuation and export performances in Nigeria” aim to determine the effect of foreign exchange dynamism on the country’s export performance from 1961-2011. Research results from the economic tool of regression analysis obtained shows that fluctuations in the naira exchange rate affect manufacturing and agricultural exports more than it affects oil export. To reduce the impact of this fluctuations on these export, monetary authorities in Nigeria should stabilize the naira exchange rate through monetary and fiscal policies, exporters should take advantage of the futures worked to eliminate the negative effects of this fluctuations on export income and performance, and fiscal and monetary policies should be initiated by the government to increase local production to meet local consumption, reducing foreign exchange demand for import consumption and reduce pressure on the naira exchange rate.
