Abstract: The contribution of this study is to investigate the linkages between Foreign Direct Investment, Domestic Investment, Exports, Imports, Labor Force and Economic Growth in Nigeria by using the vector error correction model, for the period 1981 – 2015. The empirical results indicate that there is no relationship between the six variables in the long run. In the short run, imports cause economic growth and domestic investment; exports and FDI cause labor; and labor causes FDI. These findings present the critical situation of Nigeria, which requires an entry of urgent economic reforms.
