CURRENCY DENOMINATION AND INFLATION DYNAMICS IN NIGERIA

The overriding objective of monetary policy in many countries is to ensure the stability of prices over time. Mondelling and estimating inflation dynamics has been one of the central issues in macroeconomics over the past decades. This is because inflation is considered to be detrimental to aggregate economic activity and to economic growth. Inflation impses negative externalities on an economy when it interferes with the economy’s efficiency. Inflation can lead to uncertainty about the future profitability of investment projects, especially when high inflation is also associated with increase in price variability. Therefore, reduction of inflation rate is always a priority in any economic policy agenda.

Despite series of stabilization programmes embarked upon in Nigeria, high inflation remains an issue yet to be successfully tackled. Specifically, since the introduction of the National Economic Empowerment and Development Strategy (NEEDS) in 2003, the target of single-digit inflation has not been met. In 2007, the Central Bank governor attempted to decimalize the naira with the intention to curtail the level of inflation in the country. Even with the suspension of the policy, the necessity of finding a way to curtail inflation in Nigeria cannot be ruled out. This report is the output of the study carried out in recognition of the need to analyse the effect of changes in currency denomination on inflation dynamics in Nigeria.
