One of the ways taken by all institute to make the banking sector effective is the use
of the monetary policy introduced by the Federal Government and carried out by the
apex bank of the country Apparently, the existence of an effective banking industry is
vital to every institute and it encourages economic growth and development via its
role in financial interdiction of funds supplies to deflect economic units. This
stimulates international trade, investment economic growth as well employment.
Monetary policy is one of the steps taken by every institute to make the banking
sector effective. Monetary and banking policies are the sole responsibilities of
monetary authority, which comprises of the CBN for the invitation, implementation
and articulation of monetary system. The CBN carried out these duties on behalf of
the Federal government according to CBN decree 21 of 1991 and the banks and other
financial institutions. The guideline are general in operation within a fiscal year but
could be amended on the course of the year. The CBN is equally empowered to direct
the activities of the financial institutions in order to carry out certain duties in
approved monetary policy of which penalties are prescribed for non-compliance with
specific provision of the guidelines.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Monetary policy affects financial and economic activities over the year. In other to
appreciate the effects of monetary policy o the banking Industry, it would be wise to
move a review of changing views of monetary policy on the banking industry, it
would be wise to move a review of changing views of monetary influence. Usually
when the quantity of money changes in relation in financial activities as viewed by
fisher (1932). Fisher, take other neoclassical writer who held the view that in short
run, money influences neat cash balances. According to him, when the money stock
An increase commodity prices since output and velocity were fixes initially. He
assumed that a rise in commodity prices would exceed the increase in interest rate
which was regarded as a component of a forms operating cost. In the whole analysis,
rise in commodity prices will lead to an increase in a firms profit, demand, money
stock and deposit which will eventually lead to a further rise in investment and
commodity price. The excess reserved for lending will decline with interest rate,
which was stocky earlier.
In the analysis of long term transmission of monetary influence fisher
replaced.‘Interest – investment’ channel with ‘Real cash Balance. He noted that when
wealth rises due to rise in money stock, people tend to reduce their cash balances by
purchasing goods and services since the velocity (V) and output (Y) In fishers
equation of exchange (MUPT) is fixed, the risen money stock (M) cannot lead to
increase holding of goods and services but will lead to decline in prices level (P)
Keynes (1036) accepted the change in money supply relative has both substitution and
considered investment to be quite responsible to interest rates.
Keynes recommended price induce wealth effects, (i.e change in Wealth due to
change in yields) there are ranging accounts by his interpreters about the extent he
integrate them in his general theory. Hence subsequent write to Keynes (i.e Keynesian
or post Keynesian regards the cost of capital interest rate) as the main process by
which changes in money stock. Influence the institute. Thus the change in Volume of
money alters the rate of interest usually approximated by the long term government
bound rate, which effects investment and consumption. Thus the link between Wealth
of private sector and real sectors and consumption was analyzed by Piguo (1974) and
Patikin(1951) in form of real cash balance effect. According to them changes in
quantities of money would affect aggregate. Demand even if they did not alter interest
rate. On the other hand, credit rationing would be controlled by the market forces so
as to ration the supply of credit by non-price mechanism.
Thus an expansionary monetary policy would raise the force of equity (i.e reduce the
yield on equities). The margin between the market evaluation and cost of reproducing
the existing capital goods will stimulate new investment over those goods.
The Non-monetarist argued that monetary policy is as effective as Fiscal policy as to
determine the total spending in the institute in spite of their differences. It holds the
1. The movement in quantity of money is the most reliable measure of monetary
2. Monetary authority can detect the movement in the stock of money overtime
and business cycle
3. Changes in stock money are the primary determination of total spending as
emphasized on Owen’s economic stabilization program
4. Monetary impulse are transmitted to a real institute through an active price
process or profit adjustment process which affect money Financial and real

The establishment of CBN paved way for adoption of Monetary Management by the

poor monetary Policy performance. Ogwuma (1994:362) offers a defense which says
“A less than objective appraisal of the CBN role in the institute could interpret the
adverse macro-economic trend as evidence of failure on the part of CBN.
