31 the determinants of fdi literatures are replete with theoretical and empirical evidence on foreign direct investment attraction and its determinative effects. Still on determinant of foreign direct investment in nigeria an empirical investigation according to dinda (2009), nigeria dominates the recipient of the fdi to african continent which received 70% of the sub-regional total and 11% of africa’s total and out of this nigeria’s oil sector alone received 90% between 1970 and 2006.
