The paper analysed the extent of inclusiveness of the growth of Nigerian economy. It adopted simple econometric techniques and new measures of inclusive growth to generating a unique index of inclusiveness from the three conventional measure of inclusive growth. The paper then used granger causality test to determine whether economic growth is inclusive by reducing poverty and inequality in Nigeria. It was also found to have little linkage with industrialisation, hence, economic growth cannot be a good measure of economic development. More importantly inclusive growth and industrialisation were found to be causally related and industrialisation impacted negatively on poverty incidence and inequality suggesting that policies that promote industrialisation also help in alleviating poverty and reducing inequality in Nigeria.
