Abstract

The study, which relied on secondary data, investigated the relationship between foreign borrowing and economics growth in Nigeria. The study employed both the quantitative and qualitative methods in analysing the data. This is a major gap the study filled up amidst existing literature as it adopted its own structural and working equation models peculiar to growth and development in Nigerian economy. The study adopted Ordinary Least Square (OLS) method, Augmented Dickey-Fuller (ADF) Unit Root test, Johansen Co-integration test and Error Correction Method (ECM). The estimation technique follows a three-step modelling procedure. The estimates indicate that there is an overall; a long run relationship exists among the variables. Conclusively, the result shows that external debt burden is an important factor indicator that influences the level of economic activities in Nigeria. Keywords: External debt, Economic growth and development, External borrowing foreign direct investment, and political stability
