ABSTRACT

The study examined the impact of monetary policy in stabilizing the Nigeria economy. In the model specified inflation is the regress while cash research requirement, liquidity ratio, money supply, minimum rediscount rate, interest rate are the regressors. The government employs a deliberate manipulation of cost and availability of credit and money to achieve this economic objective. The CBN being the sole regulatory body combines measures designed to regulate the value, supply and cost of money into economic activities. This is what we call monetary policy (CBN Brief 1996/03). It is against this background that the research is carried out to ascertain the effect in the use of monetary policies such as money supply, interest rate, liquidity ratio, minimum rediscount rate, inflation rate and cash reserve requirement to stabilize the Nigeria economy. Also to determine the relationship that exists between the independent variables and dependent variable from the secondary data for the period under study (1980 – 2010). The statistical technique that will be used for this analysis is the ordinary least square technique, with the aid of PC five 8.00 software package. It has been identified that the major problem militating against the poor performance of monetary policy instruments in stabilizing the economic in Nigeria is time – lags which involves policy employed to take many months to achieve its full effects. This research recommends that there should be a reduction in the cost of production and increase the exportation in order to achieve the objectives of naira devaluation in Nigeria and also, central banks should be independent and should be able to achieve its inflation targets and the stabilization of growth rate in money supply.

INTRODUCTION
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Monetary policy is the process by which monetary authority of a country
controls the supply of the money that is monetary stock often targeting a rate of
interest for the purpose of promoting economic growth and stability.
Monetary policy measures are monetary management put in place by the
government through the central bank. These measures rely on the control of
monetary stocks, that is supply of money in order to influence board macro-
economic objectives which includes price stability, high level of em*loyment
sustainable economic growth and balance of payment equilibrium. These board
objectives are achieved through the use of appropriate instrument depending on

11

In the application of monetary policy measures as instrument of

instruments. INDIRECT INSTRUMENT are usually used in the market based on
economic where the quality of money stock can affected through the relationship
between supply and resume money as well as the ability of the monetary authority

The reserved and hence money supply can be affected through the following
ways.
1. Deposit ratio/change in reserve.
2. Change in discount rate.
3. Interest rate change.

In an underdeveloped financial institution the instrument of monetary
management is largely limited to direct measure which set monetary and credit
target at desired levels. The major DIRECT control measure is direct investment

regulation however quantitative ceiling on overall credit operation is also used.
These instruments of monetary policy are applied in the achievement of varied
objectives.
