ABSTRACT
Fiscal policy is an important instrument used to attain economic stability in any country. Effective fiscal policy by the government will enable the economy to attain it macroeconomic goals. The objective of this study was to  analyses the relationship between fiscal policy and the real sector in Nigeria using an annual data from 1970- 2011.This study used secondary data  obtained from the statistical bulletin. Unit roots of the series were examined using the Augmented Dickey-Fuller technique, Philip Peron after which the  Ordinary Least Square method was conducted and co -integration test was conducted to determine the long run relationship, Error-correction models were estimated to take care of short-run dynamics. Over all, the results indicate a negative relationship between fiscal policy and the real sector in Nigeria; it was found that fiscal policy has not been effective in the area of promoting sustainable economic growth in Nigeria. Although, the finding seems invalidating the Keynesian postulation of the need for an active policy to stimulate economic activities, however, factors such as policy inconsistencies, high level of corruption, wasteful spending, poor policy implementation and lack of feedback mechanism for implemented policies evident in Nigeria which are indeed capable of hampering the effectiveness of fiscal policy have made it impossible to come up with such a conclusion. To put the Nigerian economy, therefore, along the path of sustainable growth and development, the government must put a stop to the continous unproductive foreign borrowing, wasteful spending and uncontrolled money supply and embark upon specific policies aimed at achieving increased and sustainable productivity in all sectors of the economy.
