This study analyses the long-term trend in knowledge diffusion and productivity growth in Nigeria using a translog specification. The results indicate the need for technological upgrading and imply that policies designed to promote technological development should address the complementarities between different factors of production. The article, thus, provides some support for the argument that total factor productivity (TFP) is technological knowledge and can impact significantly on productivity in a developing economy
