ABSTRACT


The study investigated the impact of external debt on exchange rate dynamic in Nigeria for the period 1996-2014. Time series data on external debt stock and external debt service was used to capture external debt burden. The study set out to test for both a long run and causal relationship between external debt and exchange rate dynamic in Nigeria. An empirical investigation was conducted using time series data on Real Gross Domestic Product, External Debt Stock, External Debt Payments and Exchange Rate from 1996-2014. The techniques of Estimation employed in the study include Augmented Dickey Fuller (ADF) test, Johansen Co-integration, Vector Error Correction Mechanism and Granger Causality Test. The results show an insignificant long run relationship and a bi-directional relationship between external debt and exchange rate dynamic in Nigeria. The study therefore, recommends that external debts should be contracted solely for economic reasons and not for social or political reasons. This is to avoid accumulation of external debt stock overtime and prevent an obscuring of the motive behind external debt. Similarly, the authorities responsible for managing Nigeria’s external debt should adequately keep track of the debt payment obligations and the debt should not be allowed to pass a maximum limit so as to avoid debt overhang.
