The study analyzed the impact of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) on Nigeria's economic growth over the period of 1987 - 2017.

The findings revealed that economic growth is directly related to the inflow of foreign direct investment and it is also statistically significant at a 5% level which implies that a good performance of the economy is a positive signal for inflow of foreign direct investment.
