ABSTRACT

This study examined government expenditure in Nigeria and its impact on the Nigerian economy. The aim was to identify the extent of impact by which the two ways of expenditure (recurrent and capital/investment) by the government are being spend. The study adopted ex-post facto research design. It used annual time series data extracted from the Central Bank Nigeria statistical bulletin and annual report. The used descriptive statistics with multiple regression techniques of the ordinary least square(OLS) where gross domestic product is the dependent variable, responsive to capital expenditure, recurrent expenditure and money supply. The regression results showed that government expenditure (capital and recurrent) and broad money supply has positive linear relationship with economic growth in Nigeria.
