Abstract

The research on the financial inclusion of the strategic financial positioning of the
critical rural areas of the Nigeria economy for survival in the 21st century was
carried out with the view to determining the effect of financial inclusion of the
rural dwellers on the economic growth of Nigeria. GDP was used to proxy
economic growth while Internal Security, Education, Health Maintenance,
Agriculture Support and Road Construction were used to proxy independent
variables. Internal Security, Education and Road Construction show positive
relationship while Health and Agriculture show negative relationship, though,
they were all insignificant. The study hereby concludes that Government should
improve on the financial inclusion of the rural dwellers to ensure sustainable
development.
