Also, the positive relationship exists between effective exchange rate, openness and terms of trade indicated that the Nigerian economy is highly opened and this openness has made it highly vulnerable to external shocks and exchange rate policy changes. Likewise, the real gross domestic leads to the appreciation of naira. Hence, the government should stimulate the productive sector of the domestic economy
