Privatization refers to the reduction or total withdrawal of public sector intervention in economic activities. It involves the relinquishment of part or all of the equity and other interest held by the government or its agency in enterprises whether wholly or partly owned by the government, the reduction in state provisions, reduction in state subsidies and reduction in state regulation of industries (enterprise). Privatization may therefore be full (total) or partial. For reasons of transparency and credibility, as well as widespread share ownership, the popular trend has been of divest through the stock market and as such, the Act gave preference to the capital market as a divestment vehicle, with government divesting its holding through the market. Thus, enterprises which met the criteria of the stock market were divested through it. The privatization and commercialization programme of the government has provided new opportunities (which never existed before for individuals, organization and government in and outside Nigeria to buy and sell securities.

          However, with this chosen channel of divestment, experience has also shown in Nigeria that privatization has increased the activities of the Nigerian stock market as well as broadened and deepened the stock market in a number of ways.

          This research is aimed at examining the impact of privatization on the stock market development in Nigeria with a view of focusing on the degree of awareness and innovation engendered into the capital market by the policy, in relation to the Nigerian stock market.

          The thesis is equally aimed at discussing such topic like privatization, the Nigerian stock exchange, impact of the exchange in privatization programme, the capital market. Special attention will be paid to such question as to, how the programme has further enlarged both the outstanding shares, shareholders and widened the type and quantity of share holders in the stock market, what extend the policy has increased awareness in the capital market on the part of the shareholders, general public and the principal operators and if privatizing through the market has made the market better appreciated by policy makers which may consequently les to the ignition of policies conducive to its growth.



Privatization of public enterprises is a vital tool for the upliftment of a country’s  economy, more especially the developing countries like Nigeria. Regrettably, the problems facing this privatization program is numerous to include:

a. Corruption

b. Lack of transparency

c. Lack of accountability

d. Inconsistency and

e. Incredibility.

However, it is based on these problems that the basic propositions of this privatization program are being hindered. In trying to look into these discrepancies and proffer a way forward towards a positive state of privatization of public enterprises in Nigeria, this research work emanated.


In view of the issues raised in the research problem, this study has a number of objectives all of which are directed towards appraising privatization policy as a development strategy for the economy.

          These objectives include:

1.              To determine the post privatization effect on the activities of the Nigerian economy

2.              To make a comparative analysis of what innovations the policy has brought into the economy

3.              To point the implications of the policy on economic development in Nigeria.

4.              To investigate the extent to which the policy in relation to the statutory role of the Nigerian economy has helped in advancing the scope of private participation in government equities.

5.              To determine to what extent the policy has improved the degree of investment in the economy.

6.              To identify whether privatization has any effect on the economy.


The scope of this research work focused strictly on those privatization and commercialization programs that have been embarked upon by Nigerian government from. This work will lead us to the evolution of public enterprises in Nigeria and also examine why they later turned out to be sold or privatized, partly or wholly. Finally, to analyze how politics been played by past administrations since 1988 towards this programme have ridicules this whole exercise.


During the conduct of this research work, some factors posed constraints to the determined efforts of the research to carryout the research study to such a depth and in such a manner that it ought to have been carried out. Some of these factors are:

a.     Time Constraint: Time is also another factor that acts as hindrances in carrying out this research study. This is as a result of the fact that other things were still being attended to in the course of carrying out this research work.

b.    Financial Constraint: Money also acts as a problem in the conduct of the research work. Traveling expenses were incurred in getting the materials for the research work. Also incurred, were expenses for the typing and distribution, building and a lot of other expenses.


The result to be obtained from this study is expected to give an insight into the impact of privatization on Nigerian          economic development. It will also be exposing the attendant benefits of the policy which would accrue to the society, government, industries in general, investors and other interested parties.

          The study is inspired to a large extent by a desire to appraise the impact of privatization policy on the economy and hence will be of great assistance to the user of the Nigerian organizations who are in need of what privatization policy in Nigeria entails in relation to the statutory role of the economy.
