Investment decision involves interaction among the savers and users of funds. Such interaction takes place in the capital market. Capital market interactions facilitate the exchange of long from finds between surplus units and deficit unit. This interaction endless the saving and using units to make up the short fall by insuring financial done on themselves. Similarly it creates an opportunity for the surplus unit to acquire income fielding financial assets.

The process of interaction therefore result in a simultaneous creates of financial liabilities. It gives rise to constant change on claims and counter claims to financial assets. Change which represent financial flows.

Optional financial flows are a necessity involvement especially in the realization of the privatization programme and it depends particular on the capital market.

However, the two major decision of a corporate body, the government etc. are the financial and investment decisions recently, the focus has shifted to investment mainly.

This result to the need for societies the government, through its privatization policy is finding a way to make it major parastatals investment oriented. This come as a result of the identifies inefficiency sectors where means that the management of these public enterprises will be either partially or completely shifted to the private enterprises who will make use of the long-term countries provided by the capital market.

As ‘described’ by Ojo and Adeworim (1982) capital market is the “stock market” in the word, of ALIKE and ANAS (1986) “A stock market is many things at the same time firstly, it’s a place where societies, (bonds, stocks and shares) of various types are traded opening and where one can purchase or sell and some securities relatively easily.


For about fifty years ago, Nigeria remains as a column of the British government with all her financial policies and implementation being contributed from overseas, this trend is counted against the federal government to mobilize the country’s of resources for a meaningful development. During the period of our political and economic allegiances to Briton, Nigeria had no outstanding capital market.

What is known lodging as the Nigerian stock exchange started from the Lagos stock exchange which was incorporated as a limited liability company in direction 21 of the company ordnance of 1980, as non profit making organization limited by grantee and informed to promoted commerce in Nigeria and it began operations on June 19 by (Nwankwo 1987 P.132) its establishment follow the report of the committee appointed to advice on ways and means of fostering share market in Nigeria. This committee was set up in 1958. In July 1962, the capital market in Nigeria was essential are adore committee and handled about.

In march 1973, an act was promulgates creating a capital issues commission which was to super code the adore capital issue committee determing the price at which the shares of debentures of a campaign are to be sold, the terming and the amount of sale and in the case of a company whose securities have been quotes on any recognized stock exchange.

The price turning amount of supplementary offer for sale.
