The research work highlight the challenges of globalization on the Economic of Nigeria, challenges of trade globalization on poverty reduction and benefit on international trade in order to see if Nigeria has experienced a noticeable growth in reduction of poverty. The study covered the period of 1993 to 2013. Secondary data was adopted through Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Statistical Bulletin. The study adopted the econometric techniques of the Non-Monotonic modeling and the Analysis of variance (ANOVA) modeling and Ordinary Least Square (OLS) to estimation technique.
