ABSTRACT
One of the main objectives of the government is to control the rate of inflationary pressure in the economy. The government employs a deliberate manipulation of cost and availability of credit and money to achieve this economic objective. The Central bank of Nigeria being the 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 this research is carried out to ascertain the effect on the use of monetary policies such as money supply, interest rate and cash reserve requirement to control the rate of inflation. Also to determine the relationship that exists between the independent variables and inflation rate from the secondary data for the period under study (1986-2010). The ordinary least square (OLS) method was employed for this analysis. This research recommends the stabilization of growth rate in money supply. Also it recommends the increase in the cash reserve requirement of banks so as to reduce the amount of loanble funds available to banks.
