EXTERNAL DEBT AND THE NIGERIA ECONOMY: AN EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS

Research Details

The study seeks to determine the impact of external debt on Nigeria using annual data from 1981-2009. In our empirical analysis, we run ordinary least square test to verify the statistical significance of the variables used and Johansen cointegration to determine the order of integration among the variables. Empirical investigations revealed that the coefficient of external debt is statistically significant at 5% while other variables such as prime lending rate. Growth rate of GDP are not statistically significant. Our cointegration results revealed the existence of two cointegrating equations at 5% level of significance among Gross domestic product, external debt, PLR, GRGDP and GREXDS. The results show the existence of long-run relationship among the variables.

Nigeria's economic histories in the pre and post independence era are important in order to understand the magnitude of her economic problems and the measures in the recent past to combat the external debt crisis and achieve sustainable economy recovery and growth
