Abstract:
The aim of this study is to investigate government spending on infrastructure and its relationship with economic growth in Nigeria. This study is based on Agency, New Public Management, Institutional, Economic growth ánd Keynesian theories. The research question is, ‘To what extent does government spending on infrastructure have relationship with Economic growth in Nigeria?’ Both primary and secondary data are used. For the primary data, a sample of two hundred and forty- two respondents are utilised for the study. Statistical random sampling was used for the sample selection. The secondary data comprise of actual annual spending on selected infrastructure and annual Gross Domestic Products for 2010 to 2015 for Lagos State Nigeria. The data analysis was done with One- Sample T-Test, t. Pearson rank coefficient of correlation, r and Descriptive statistics. The results indicate that spending on road and transport infrastructure have significant relationship with economic growth. However, there is an inverse, not significant relationship between spending on agriculture and economic growth. This study supports the principles in the theories examined. This study recommends that there should be more spending on agriculture to reduce hunger and improve citizens ’ welfare. A major contribution to knowledge arising from this study is that although Keynesian theory presupposes that Government intervention can stabilize an economy especially during recession when there is little money to spend, but based on the results of this study, it is argued that government spending on infrastructure intervention must reach a sustainable threshold that sustains basic individual citizen’s welfare, before it could stabilize the economy, not only during recession but at all times.
