Abstract

This study examines the effect of crude oil price on Nigerian economy from (1986-2015). In this research work, Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) technique was used and six variables were used in the empirical analysis. Hence, real gross domestic product is assumed to be dependent variable, which depends on crude oil price (COP), real exchange rate (REER), government expenditure (GOVTEXP), inflation (INF) and money supply (MSP). The result reveals that crude oil price and exchange rate are significant determinants of Real GDP in Nigeria. It is, therefore, recommended that revenue from oil should be used judiciously in diversifying the economy. Also, government pursuit of managed float exchange rate is desirable to ensure a substantial increase in the external reserve without significant damage of the exchange rate of the country.
