THE IMPACT OF MONETARY POLICY MEASURE ON THE NIGERIA ECONOMIC GROWTH OF NIGERIA
This paper examines the impact of monetary policy on the Nigerian economy. In doing this, the Ordinary Least Squares Method (OLS) is used to analyse data between 1981 and 2011. The result of the analysis shows that monetary policy presented by money supply exerts a positive impact on GDP growth and Balance of Payment but negative impact on rate of inflation. The recommendations are that monetary policy should facilitate a favourable investment climate through appropriate interest rates, exchange rate and liquidity management mechanism and the money market should provide more financial instruments that satisfy the requirement of the ever-growing sophistication of operators.
This study examined the effect of monetary policy outcomes on macroeconomic stability in Nigeria. Data was gathered for a time frame of 1985 to 2010 from the CBN statistical bulletin. A simplified ordinary least squared technique stated in multiple forms was applied to the data after ensuring data stationarity. At 5% significant level, none of the variables are statistically significant. The insignificant statistics between monetary policy, gross domestic product, credit to the private sector, net credit to the government and inflation in Nigeria, suggest that monetary policy as a policy option may have been inactive in influencing price stability. These considerations suggest that sound fiscal policies will be an important component of the policy mix if the move to price stability is to be sustained and credible.
This paper examines the impact of monetary policy on the Nigerian economy. In doing this, the Ordinary Least Squares Method (OLS) is used to analyse data between 1981 and 2008. The result of the analysis shows that monetary policy presented by money supply exerts a positive impact on GDP growth and Balance of Payment but negative impact on rate of inflation. The recommendations are that monetary policy should facilitate a favourable investment climate through appropriate interest rates, exchange rate and liquidity management mechanism and the money market should provide more financial instruments that satisfy the requirement of the ever-growing sophistication of operators.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Monetary policy as a technique of economic management to bring about Sustainable economic growth and development has been the pursuit of nations and formal articulation of how money affects economic aggregates dates back the time of Adams Smith and later championed by the monetary economists. Since the expositions of the role of monetary policy in influencing macroeconomic objectives like economic growth, price stability,
equilibrium in balance of payments and host of other objectives, monetary authorities are saddled the responsibility of using monetary policy to grow their economies. In Nigeria, monetary policy has been used since the Central bank of Nigeria was saddled the responsibility of formulating and implementing monetary policy by Central bank Act of 1958. This role has facilitated the emergence of active money market where treasury bills, a financial instrument used for open market operations and raising debt for government has grown in volume and value becoming a prominent earning asset for investors and source of balancing liquidity in the market. There have been various regimes of monetary policy in Nigeria some times, monetary policy is tight and
at other times it is loose mostly used to stabilize prices. The economy has also witnessed times of expansion and contraction but evidently, the reported growth has not been a sustainable one as there is evidence of growing poverty among the populace. The question is, could the period of growth be attributed to appropriate monetary
policy? And could the periods of economic down turn be blamed on factors other than monetary policy ineffectiveness? What measures are to be considered if monetary policy would be effective in bringing about sustainable economic growth and development?. These are the Questions this study would attempt to answer.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Of recent, the economic sector in Nigeria has not been able to fulfill its traditional role of feeding the population, meeting the raw materials needs of industries, as well as providing substantial export earnings for the economy. Indeed, the contribution of the sector to gross domestic product (GDP) has been falling, not necessarily because a strong industrial sector is displacing agriculture but as a result of low productivity. The largely subsistence economic sector has failed to keep up with rapid population growth.
Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country and the country, once a large net exporter of food, now imports food. Emerging problems which constrained the full realization of the potentials in the economic sector include: inadequacies in the supply and delivery of farm inputs, shortage of working capital, low level of technology, diseases and pest infestation, poor post-harvest processing and shortage, technology, environment hazards, labour and land use constraints. Most of these problems could be solve with the appropriate monetary policy.
The need to correct the existing structural distortions in Nigerian economic sector and put the economy on the path of sustainable growth is therefore compelling. This raises the question of what monetary policy to adopt to develop the economic sector in order to realize the potentials of the sector. This is the main thrust of this study.
1.3 OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY
facilitate growth or not and examine the effect of other co-operant factors in bringing about the desired sustainable economic development in Nigeria.

1.7 SCOPE AND DELIMITATION OF THE STUDY
The economy is a large component with lot of diverse and sometimes complex parts. However, this study will only focus on some macroeconomic variables such as the monetary policy and economic development. This study will cover all the facets that make up the monetary policy, but shall empirically investigate the effect of the major ones. The empirical investigation of the impact of the monetary policy on the agricultural development in Nigeria shall be restricted to the period between 1970 and 2010.
This study shall contain five chapters. The first chapter shall contain the background of the study, the statement of the research problem, the objectives of the study, the research questions etc that would guide the study. Chapter two summarises the opinions of different authors on the subject matter. Chapter three states the methodology adopted in the study. Chapter four focuses on the presentation and interpretation of the regression results. The last chapter, which is chapter five, presents the summary of the findings, conclusion and appropriate recommendations.
