OF THE PROBLEM AND PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
Investment generally speaking
is a function of saving. Without saving there can be no investment. Saving on
the other hands is a function of income. This is because excess of income over
expenditure lead to saving.
In Nigeria however, the average income level is very low. In view of this,
investment level is very low compared to the level necessary to make the economy
This therefore gives rise to a need for foreign investment to fill up the gap.
When this is done, the economy can them grow at a reasonable rate.
Unfortunately, the level of foreign investment in the economy is also very low.
View of this situation the economy appears to be stagnant. Foreigner has not
been motivated to a reasonable level to make them invest in the economy. One of
the problems which appear to be scaring foreigners away is the level of
corruption in the country.

continue to increase while there is no corresponding increase in investment.

through liberal financial policies, these efforts are not yet enough to attract
the much needed foreign investment.
