Broad money and Economy

Drilling deeper into the numbers, Nigeria’s broad money supply (M3) serves as a pivotal gauge of economic liquidity, encompassing both net foreign assets and net domestic assets. This holistic measure provides insights into the nation’s monetary dynamics and overall economic health.


The trajectory of Nigeria’s broad money supply has been on an undeniable upward trajectory, surging at an accelerated pace in recent years. These unprecedented levels of liquidity reflect various factors influencing the economy, including fiscal policies, international trade dynamics, and domestic investment trends.

This surge in broad money supply underscores the evolving nature of Nigeria’s financial landscape and the resilience of its economy amidst various challenges. As the nation navigates through economic uncertainties, policymakers and stakeholders must closely monitor these trends to ensure stability and sustainable growth.

“Increasing liquidity can stimulate economic activity and facilitate investment,” noted an economist familiar with Nigeria’s monetary policies. “However, it’s essential to maintain a balance to prevent inflationary pressures and ensure the stability of the financial system.”
