There fore I want to find out the impact of monetary policy on the profitability of commercial banks
The following are the reason of these study.
the significance of monetary policy cannot be over emphasized.
This because the objective of monetary policy such as prices stability, employment and balance of payment equilibriums are necessary prerequisite of economic development.

Generally banks play important roles in the development of any nation especially the commercial bank.
The banking industry is a very sensitive one and is often said to be the backbone of every economy. Therefore the failure of banks may bring about the failure of the entire nation, thus the need to control the activities of banks to enhance effective development.
Successive government in Nigeria have always tried to have effective control of banking operation especially in their loans and advances and investing activities as these affect the freedom and ability of these banks to make profits. Thus, the credit guidelines issued by the monetary authorities had the problem of compliance, banks sometime ignore abiding with the provision of these guidelines to pursue highly profitable business ventures even when such meant exceeding their credit ceiling.
This problem of non compliance equally made it relatively impossible to achieve the goals of effective economic development which is the essence of controlling the banking industry.
This problem therefore is what interest me and that is what this project wants to address and the handicap being faced by banks in trying to strive a balance between liquidity find profitability as imposed by the CBN monetary policy.
