INTRODUCTION

1.1 CONTEXT FOR THE STUDY

The growth and stabilization of the Nigerian economy have not been stable throughout the years; as a result, the country’s has experienced several internal and foreign shocks and disruptions over the decades. Internally, the unstable investment and consumption patterns, as well as the incorrect execution of public policies, alterations in future expectations, and the accelerator, are some of the causes. Similarly, wars, revolutions, population growth rates and migration, technical transfer and change, and the openness of the Nigerian are some of the external factors that could influence the of fiscal policy.

The cyclical changes in the country’s economic activities have resulted in recurrent increases in unemployment and inflation, as well as external sector disequilibria (Gbosi, 2001). In other words, fiscal policy is a major economic stabilization tool that entails measures to regulate and control the volume, cost, and availability of money in an , as well as its ion, in order to achieve a particular macroeconomic policy objective and to counteract undesirable economic trends in Nigeria (Gbosi, 1998). Therefore, they cannot be left to market forces of demand and supply and other stability instruments like as monetary and exchange rate policies, among others, to combat recognized problems (Ndiyo and Udah 2003). This may include an increase or decrease in taxes as well as government expenditures, which are the foundation of fiscal policy, but in reality, government policy requires a combination of fiscal and instruments to stabilize an because none of these instruments alone can solve all of an ’s problems (Ndiyo and Udah, 2003).

The Nigerian began experiencing a recession in the early 1980s, which led to a depression in the middle of the decade. This depression lasted till the beginning of the 1990s without recovery. As a result, the government consistently implemented fiscal policy measures to combat, stabilize, and reverse the ’s decline. In light of the experience of the Depression, the government’s response to the Depression was to boost government spending (Nagayasu, 2003). According to Okunroumu (), the administration of the Nigerian in an effort to attain macroeconomic stability has been ineffective and counterproductive; thus, it cannot be said that the Nigerian is performing. This is evidenced by the negative inflationary trend, government fiscal policies, fluctuating foreign exchange rates, the fall and rise of the gross domestic product, an unfavorable balance of payments, and the growth in unemployment rates. As a result, the Nigerian is unable to function properly due to low capacity caused by a lack of foreign money and variable and unpredictable government fiscal policies in Nigeria (Isaksson, 2001).

The fiscal policy thrust utilized to manipulate the depends on the objectives that must be attained during a given time period. The objective of government intervention in the through fiscal policy has been to control the revenue and expenditure sides of the government’s budget in order to attain specific national goals. In actuality, however, there have been many instances of waste, politicization of some spending, and high levels of misappropriation, mismanagement, and corruption.
