This project work assessed the impact of capital market to economic growth: A case study of the NSE from 1995-2009. Employing the ordinary least square multiple regression model, the hypothesis formulated were tested in order to ascertain the nature of the relationship between the capital market, NSE and Nigeria’s economic growth. While economic growth as the dependent variable was denoted by Gross Domestic Product (GDP), the capital market performance indicator, being the explanatory variable, were given as number of listed securities, volume of shares traded, market turnover etc. The result from the analysis and test of hypothesis at 5% significant level showed that over the period considered, there exists a high level of relationship between GDP and the capital market predictor variables as a whole. On the strength of these findings, the study recommends among others, that the relevant authorities should create an enabling environment of political and macroeconomic stability for the influx of foreign and local investment into the capital market for its growth and consequently the growth of the economy.
