The broad objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of external debt on the development of the Nigeria economy within the life-span of 1985-2011.The models in this study were used to evaluate the developmental relationship between the independent variables and the dependent variables. The data were sourced from the Federal office of statistics, CBN statistical bulletin 2011, and international monetary fund (IMF). The ordinary least square method (OLS) was employed in the cause of study. Also, the Augmented Dickey Fuller test (ADF) revealed that the variables are reliable for forecasting while the use of OLS was most appropriate for the study in terms of goodness of fit and significance of regression coefficient. The outcome of the analysis revealed that increase in external debt positively affects the economic development of Nigeria while increase in external debt services positively affects economic development in Nigeria.

And by recommendation, government should incur external fund for developmental projects and as well monitor effectively the use of external funds so as to ensure the development of Nigeria economy....
