There have been the growing concerns and controversies on the role of the stock markets on economic growth and development (Oyejide 1994; Levine and Zerros 1996; Demirgine Kunt and Levine 1996; Nyong 1997, Obadan 1998; Sule and Momoh 2009; Evah, Esang and Basey 2009;) there have been mixed results; while some are in support of a positive link some negative link and other do not find any empirical evidence to support such conclusion. For instance: Aye and Jovanovic (1993) found in a cross-country study of stock and economic growth of 40 countries from 1980 to 1998 that there was a significant correlation between the average economic growth and stock market capitalization.

Levine and Zervos (1996) examined whether there was a strong empirical relationship between stock market development and long-run economic growth. They found a strong correlation between overall stock market development and long-run economic growth.

Demiurgic-Kunt and Levine (1996) using data from 44 countries for the period 1986 – 1996 found the different measure of stock exchange size are strongly correlated to other indicator or activity levels of financial, banking, non-banking institution as well as to insurance companies and pension funds. They concluded that countries with well-developed stock market tend to also have well-developed financial intermediaries.

Again Demiurgic-Kunt and Maksi-Movic (1998) have show and re-emphasized the complementary role of the stock market and banks that they were not rival or alternative in tuitions using 30 countries from 1980 to 1991, Levine and Zervos (1998) used pooled cross-country tune series regression of 47 countries from 1976 to 1993 to evaluate whether stock market liquidity is related to growth, capital accumulation and productivity.

They towed the line of demiurgic-Kunt and Levine (1996) by conglomerating measure such as stock market size, liquidity and integration with world market, into index of stock market development. The rate of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capital was regressed on a variety of variables designed to control for initial conditions political instability, investment in human capital and macro-economic condition and then, included the conglomerated index of stock market development. They found empirically that the measures of stock market liquidity were strongly related to growth capital accumulation and productivity while stock-market size does not seems to correlate to economic growth.

Nyong (1997) developed an aggregate index of capital market development and used it to determine its relationship with long-run economic growth in Nigeria. The study employed a time series data from 1970 to 1994. Four measures of capital market development ratio of market capitalization to GDP (in %) ratio of total value of equities transactions relative to GDP and listing were used. The four measures were combined into one overall composite index of capital market development using principal component analysis. The financial market depth was included as control. It was found that the capital market development is negatively and significantly correlated with the long-run growth in Nigeria. Demiurgic-Kunt and Maksimovic (1998) citied in Henry (2000) found a relationship between economic growth and the stock market activity in the field of transmission of security (secondary market) more than in funds channeling (primary market).

Barlett (2000) demonstrated that a raising stock price raises the wealth of the economy (wealth effect) by encouraging increases in consumers consumption and increase in investment.

Ewan et al (2009) appraise the impact of the capital market efficiency on the economic growth of Nigeria using time series data from 1961 to 2004 they found that the capital market in Nigeria has a potential of  growth inducing but it has not contributed meaningfully to economic growth of Nigeria because of low market capitalization, low absorptive capitalization, liquidity, misappropriation of funds among others. Harris (1997) did not find hard evidence that stock market activity affects the level of economic growth.
