Monetary policies refer to measures or contributions of measures designed by the monetary authorities to influence or regulate the volume and direction of money and credit, Hyman, (1989). Monetary Policy influences the volume and direction of purchasing power in the economy and it is an instrument of market intervention to achieve rationally stipulated objectives which would otherwise be impossible to attain in terms of volume, speeds and direction, Oyindo (1991).
The extent to which money and monetary policies influence finance and economic activities have been widely discussed over the years. While it is generally agreed that monetary. development affects economic and financial performance, there are of different views on the extent of effect and the channels through which this effect is achieved. Therefore, the effect are achieved directly as well as indirectly through feed-back effect from the economy thus, monetary management rely on two b; ad categories of tools or instrument usually when the quality of money supply changes relative to money demand because of policy measures, there are changes in relative price and wealth, Onyindo (1991).
Monetary and banking policies are usually the responsibility of the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Central Government. In Nigeria, the Central Bank exercise primary responsibilities for initiating, articulating, implementing and appraising such policies to the approval of the federal government, Odozi (1995).
The package of measures for monetary and banking management so far has had desirable effects like keeping the liquidity in the banking system from exploding further, but to an extent, the monetary authorities were unable to prevent growth in credit and money stock which was mainly as a result of undue fiscal expansion which has prosily greater challenges for the future.

Thus, to ensure efficiency, the Central Bank of Nigeria is of permanent importance.
In the past, Banks operate arm chair banking which they occupy prior to the banking industry, thus position brought about 1itte or no competition in the banking industry because bank were few at that time, thus made customers open account out of a free will.

There are two basic way of making the sample size decision, one is by rule of thumb and the other one is by calculated method. In this research work, the rule of the thumb was used for this research where 50 workers of total population were selected as the sample size. The sample is also made up of senior and junior staff of the Union Bank Plc. This test will provide answers to the questions raised in the research problem. The questionnaires were administered based on the non-random selection of the persons as contained in the sample. This was done in such a way as to get the desired result. The questionnaire contains nineteen fifty (50) questions. . The formulated hypotheses were tested using chi-square (X2) test statistics which measures the significance of the difference between the observed set of frequencies.
The result of the analysis indicates that
The study examined the effect of monetary policy tools on the financial performance of Deposit
Money Banks in Nigeria. The study found that monetary policy tools have no significant effect on the financial performance of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria. Thus, the study concludes that monetary policy tools do not influence the financial performance of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria.
The study assessed the effect of Treasury Bill Rate (T-Bill Rate) on the financial performance of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria. The results showed that T-Bill Rate had a positive effect on the financial performance of Deposit Money Banks. Thus, the study concluded that T-Bill rates have a positive but insignificant affect the financial performance of deposit money banks in Nigeria.
The study examined the effect of Central Bank Rate on the financial performance of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria. The results showed that Central Bank Rate had a negative effect on the financial performance of Deposit Money Banks. The study therefore concluded that Central
Bank Rate has no significant affect the financial performance of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria.
The study also assessed the effect of Cash Reserve Ratio on the financial performance of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria. The results showed that Cash Reserve Ratio had a negative effect on the financial performance of Union Bank. Thus, the study concluded that Cash Reserve Ratio does not affect the financial performance of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria.
The study examined the effect of bank size on the financial performance of Union Bank of Nigeria. The results showed that bank size had a weak positive effect on the financial performance of Deposit Money Banks. Thus, the study concluded that bank size affects the financial performance of firms in Nigeria.
Based on the findings made in this study, the following recommendations have been made to address some of the problems discovered:
- The study recommends that Deposit Money Banks should put more emphasis on the internal factors to financial performance.
- These internal factors include capital adequacy, asset quality, management efficiency, earnings ability and liquidity management.
- Monetary policy tools effect will be handled by the management through risk management policies for the bank.
- The study further recommends that while bank size was found to lead to better financial performance, it is important that banks understand the source of its funds and the costs associated with the funds.
- Findings emanating from the empirical analysis of this study proffered that monetary authority; the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) should adjust the monetary policy rate by reducing the cash reserve ratio which will increase liquidity to enable the Deposit Money Banks to discharge their lending and investment duties effectively to the public.
- It is important that monetary and fiscal policies be complimentary and not working at variance. The co-integration tests which show a disquilibrium by 41% which suggest that the level of cohesion in harmonizing policies are not adequate. The CBN and the Ministry of finance should work more closely to objectively articulate policies in the same economic direction.
- The CRR should be complementing the Open Market Operations (OMO) in ensuring that excess liquidity or lack of it in the banking system is minimized, that way Money Supply (M2) will be more effective as a tool on measuring other performance indicators.
- From the findings, the Liquidity Reserve Ratio (LRR) tends to impact more on bank turnover ratio. Because monetary effects of CRR changes are hard to be isolated from those of other policy measures. It means that the constraint of higher reserve requirements on bank lending seems more binding when initial excess reserves shrink below some threshold, restraining the subsequent loan expansion while leading to higher, more volatile market interest rates. The CBN should carefully and thoroughly consider the turnover effect in deciding the LRR.
5.4 Suggestions for Further Research
The study suggests that more studies be done in this area focusing on all banks in Nigeria as well as other financial institutions such as microfinance that also give loans. This can be done by focusing on all Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria and microfinance institutions. Studies should also be conducted on the topic using fairly longer time periods (more than 5 years) and smaller time intervals (say quarterly) of data collection as such studies may be useful in showing the trends as well as the long terms relationship between monetary policy and financial performance of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria.
The study also recommends that further studies explore the relationship between monetary policy and financial performance of Deposit Money Banks with categories of small, medium and big banks. As has been noticed from the research data, bigger banks exhibited larger Net Interest Margins as compared to smaller banks.
