The results of the test is insignificant with 0.000 coefficient indicating that Random Effects Model is more appropriate and better model for the analysis. In view of the above, our result is based on Random Effects Estimation.

Sani Muhammad, MSc., Abdullahi Idris, MSc., and Sadisu Abdulazeez Matazu, MBA

Abstract: This study assesses the nexus between judicial corruption, foreign direct investment and financial development in Nigeria using Johansen’s Test for Cointegration and Granger Causality Tests for data spanning the period of 1980-2016 to estimate long-run dynamics and causal links between judicial corruption, foreign direct investment, and financial development. The Johansen Cointegration result discovered that financial development has a significant negative impact on Foreign Direct Investment, and Government capital expenditure has a significant positive impact on Foreign Direct Investment. The result of the Pairs Granger Causality Test revealed bidirectional causality between judicial corruption and foreign direct investment. However, the result further revealed that foreign direct investment granger-caused institutional quality while capital expenditure granger-caused foreign direct investment. In sum, the study concludes that justice delayed is growth denied and foreign direct investment messed-up. The study, therefore, recommends that the institution of justice be reformed, civil litigations are discharged on time and judicial independence be restored accordingly.
