In all the development countries in the word, it was through their good implementation of monetary policy control that their monetary control and supply of money was well manage and implemented very well.  Basic on my own view I believed that the monetary authority in our country will do better to achieved the in goal is they do not mis-led the good involve they have started.  I also believed from the little that has be done since they started 1962.  They have be some improvement in the system, some of this system are.

The economic growth which the standard of living has been some improvement and the environment has grow.  More also, the relative stability in the domestic prices and double inflation which they have restrain to a digit.

The need for monetary policies in a developing economy like Nigeria cannot be over-emphasized for monetary management and for the regulation and development of the financial system of an economy.
