ABSTRACT

This study examines “The Impact of Capital Market on Economic Erowth in Nigeria”. Economic growth was proxied by gross domestic product while capital market performance was measured by market capitalization, total new issues, volume of transaction and listed equities. Data was collected using secondary source of data only. The technique employed was multiple regression as tool of analysis for the study. The findings of the study shows that the capital market performance has positively and significantly impacted on the Nigerian economy within the period of the study (1983- 2010). The study therefore, recommends among others that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) and Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) should ensure free flow of information in the market. This is necessary in order to attract more investors and increase new issues which will automatically increase the quantum of market capitalization that will result in improving the performance of the Nigerian capital market.

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The capital market  is highly specialisedand organized financial market and indeed essential agent of economic growth and development (Odetayoand Sayugbe  2012; Okoye and  Nwisieryi 2013)  because of its ability to facilitate and mobilisesaving and investment (Okodua and Ewetan, 2015; Dowa and Odia, 2010)Adesin et at (2013) opine that capital market is a driver or lubricant that keep turning the wheel of the economy to growth and development because of the imperative function of not just mobilizing long-term funds and channeling term to productive investment but also efficiently allocating these funds to project of best return to fund owners.

To a great extent, the positive relationship between capital market accumulation and economic growth has long been attained in economic theories Cayanwu 2010; Osamwony:  and Kasimu, 2013) success in capital accumulation and mobilization for development varies among nations but it is largely dependent on domestic savings and inflow of  foreign capital (Osumwonyi and Adol 2013; Okoye and Nwisiery;   2013)  therefore to arrest the menaceof the current economic downturn, effect must be geared towards effective resources mobilization.

It is in realization of this that considerationis given to measure for the mobilization of finance from the surplus sectors to the deficit  sectors (Adeusi el al 2013).

The development of capital market in Nigerian as in other developing countries, has  been included  as fostered by the government.  Through prior to the establishment of the stock market in Nigeria, as a formal capital market .  assuring on the recommendation of the committee, the Lagos stock exchange (as it was called then) was set up in march 1960it was incorporated under section 2 cap 37 through  the effort of Central Bank of Nigeria (pat and James 2010) with the establishment of the coming into existence of the Lagos stock exchange a sound foundation was laid for the operation of the Nigeria  capital market for trading in securities of long term nature needed for the financing of the industrial sector and the economy at large.  After the incorporation of Lagos stock exchange, it was qranted further protection under the law and its activities was placed under some sort of control by the government hence the passing of the Lagos stock exchange act however, the Lagos stock exchange was only operational in Lagos.  By the mid 70’s  the need for an efficient financial system for the  an efficient financial system for the whole nation was emphasized  and a review by the government of the operation of the Lagos stock exchange market was educated (A lile and Ana 2008) the review  was carried out to take care of the law capital formulation, the huge amount of currency in circulation which were held outside  the banking system:  on December 2nd and the memorandum and article of association creating the Lagos stock exchange was transformed into the Nigeria stock exchange with branches in Kaduna, Port-Harcourt and now federal cities the history  of Nigeria  capital market could be traced to 1996 when the British colonial administration  floated a N600,00 Local  loan stock  bearing project under the ten-years plain  Local ordinance.  Owolabi and Ajay, (2013) post that  the link between saving  capital formation and economic growth on the one hand and direction of causality on the other  still remain subject to further angles across. Countries stressingthat accepting the relationship  is unidirectional (ie, moving from saving to investment and hence to economic growth) cycle misleading.

Therefore, this project work will examine the role of the capital market in hamssing and mobilizing  these resource to general economic growth in the country and consequently economic development.
