By Aleke Jeremiah .a.

Many "why questions" about human conduct refer to
motivation. In everyday activities people always refm to motives,
wants, desires, needs, goals, thirst, love aspiration, drive, wish, aim,
ambition and revenge to mention but a few.
Motives, or motivation, refm to an internal state that may resuk
from a need. It is pictured as activating or arousing behaviour usually
directed towards fulfilIing the instigating need.
Needs are deficiencies. Drives are motives that arise to satis@
basic survival - related needs, while instincts refers to complicated
pattern of behavim rooted in heredity.
Motivation may be intrinsic or extrinsic - intrinsic when it
comes fkom the individual and extrinsic when it emanates fiom
outside the individual. It is an indispensable stimulus for progress and
growth as well as adjustment in the individual's self actuaIization.

An Econometric Study of the Effect of Monetary Policy on Commercial Banks Supply of Agricultural Credit in Nigeria

By Alenyi, Innocent Onu

The main object of this investigation was to study the effect of the monetary
policy instruments on agricultural credit supply in Nigeria by the Commercial
banks.
To achieve this broad spectrum objective, time-series data from 1980- 1995
were collected. The data were subjected to statistical and econometric analyses.
The econometric analysis used the methodology of regression analysis where
# aggregate credit supply was the endogenous variable in several models. The
exogenous variables include: the liquidity ratio, the lending interest rate, the
discount rate and the cash reserve ratio. The statistical analysis revealed that based
on comparative analysis (agriculture and other sectoral distribution) of commercial
banks' credit, the issuance of agricultural credit had a gradual and consistent growth
in the period under review. The compliance performance of commercial banks' to
the monetary and credit policy guidelines were encouraging (that is, from 1980-
1987, the banks' compliance performance ranged between 78.7 % and 90 % ;
between 1988 and 1993 except for 1992, the banks' compliance to policy guidelines
on credit disbursement became positive (as the banks overshot the prescribed
allocation) and this ranged between 102% and 106%.
X
The econometric analyses showed that the specified explanatory variables
(liquidity ratio, lending interest rate, discount rate and cash reserve ratio) were
significant at 95 % confidence level. Furthermore, liquidity ratio and cash reserve
ratio were inversely related to the amount of credit supplied agriculture while
lending interest rate and discount rate were positively related to it. The extent and
directions of these relationships prompted some policy recommendations, which
include :
- that cash reserve ratio be reduced to enable the banks create more credit and
channel the created credit to the private sector for investment. The
investigation also recommended that the discount rate or the minimum
rediscount rate be given a significant place as a tool of monetary policy in
Nigeria as the several interest rate structure is dependent on it.
- to increase agricultural credit supply by the commercial banks in their loan
extension, the issuance of stringent monetary and credit guidelines would be
a disservice.
- that the Central Bank should intensify its efforts on the instruments of
monetary and credit policy as a means of channelling credit to the real
sectors of the economy.

Conflict Management in Enugu State University of Technology and University of Nigeria, Nsukka Libraries

By Alexander, Onuabueke Ali

Man is the most difficult organizational management apparatus. Unlike machines and other supportive equipment, he needs more manipulation for efficiency. Man deserves careful handling by managers for the achievement of organizational objectives, but in the process of man's manipulation by managers, conflicts do occur and the ability of any manager to successfully contain the conflicts in an organization is a testimony to the degree of his awareness of the organization's problems and other imperatives.
