The purpose of this study is to investigate investment criteria; and through the result of this investigation to pass on value judgment on the determinants of national economic development with investment as a point of departure. The problem in this study has a number of unanswered questions. The aims of this thesis are to attempt a solution for making the mobility of capital less difficult; to point out how the Federation of Nigeria is encouraging investment; to point out some of the advantages of more investment in Nigeria; to incite incentives to investment in the further development of Nigeria.

The study covers a number of selected years within the period of 1950 to 1962. The main concern of this thesis is focused on the national development and the economic growth of the Federation of Nigeria through investment from within and from without the country.
