ABSTRACT

This study was embarked upon with a view to determining the impact of interest

rate on other selected macroeconomic variables in Nigeria. Data were sourced

from CBN Abuja and NBS. Data were analyzed using the ordinary least square

regression (OLS). Results indicate that: Interest rate is inversely related

investment and also negatively related with GDP. On the basis of the above

stated findings some policy recommendations were made.(1)Government

should establish policies that encourage increase in savings deposit rate,

reduction in lending rates and also, efficient and reliable financial institutions

encourage people to save. (2) The require reserve ratio should be to strengthen

the lending rate of commercial banks. (3) We recommend that the government

and financial authorities should implement policies that favour income growth

such as job creation and increase in salaries and wage increase as these will

affect investment significantly.
