1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Reform which refers to making changes for improvement in order to remove abuse and injustices in the banking industry. Reform is what
that brings, lead or force banking industries to abandon a wrong or evil course of life, conduct and adopt a right one. According to Wikipedia

Reform resulted from the of the financial environment. Due to the changing characteristics in the banking industry, there was a
need for banks to resort to consolidation to meet the new capital requirement by CBN for bank to operate.

The increase in the capital base (paid up share capital) from N5 billion to 25 billion naira, le an option from some commercial bank to
consolidate in other to meet up the requirements. The number of banks decreased from 89 banks to 24 banks due to consolidation as the
only option le from those banks without the need of financial muscle to meet N25billion new capital base requirements.

OJIUKO and
NGWU (2004; 89)
However, banking all over the world has a fundamental nature which is risk and inter-mediation between the surplus and deficit unit of the
economy. Its main business is maturity transformation which is defined as borrowing long and length short, which is a cardinal rule of
financial management. This enable meet her financial obligation as the fall due or as the manage their affairs prudently.

KANU and OKEZIE
(2005; 116)
Management of their affairs is centrally based on management of their lending and investment activities to ensure liquidity and maximized
profit. Lending is the highest earning asset bank balance sheets that contribute materially to the bank achievement and fulfillment of the
objective of profitability by providing a higher return than other financial assets.

It also helps management to satisfy the legal and other regulatory objectives of monitory authorities. It is a vehicle through which banks
management attempt to satisfy the credit needs of the community in which they operate or serve. NWANKWO (1990:112)
Lending activities although being the highest earning to the bank is also the liquid and most risky of bank operations.

Apart from this, lending is an important aspect of banking and of the cardinal principles of classical banking is to ensure effective lending,
which is to maximize profitability and ensure adequate liquidity.

However, the bankers view runs contrary to the demand of a developing environment which demands that bank lending objective should in
cooperate contributions to the development of the environment in which they operate. That is, operating as a co-operate citizen.

This dilemma facing banking activities in developing economy like ours, needs to be resolved to ensure a conducive environment for the
banking operations as well as to avoid crises. KANU (2003:2)
In addition to other segments of bank activities they invest in all forms of government, private and co-operate securities so as to increase
the level of economic activities in a given economy and to increase their profit.

Without doubt, banks have as their objective the desire to survive, to make profit and to grow. Banks invests for the following reasons: for
survival, growth, make profit or receive return and to increase the market value of their shares. In attempt to achieve this objective, the
bank has to manage its lending and investment activities well to have adequate at hand to meet the withdrawal need of her depositors,
contribute to the development of the environment in which the operate and as well make profit to their owners. KANU (2003:2)

1.2 STATEMENT OF THE

Banking lending and investment activities intend to enhance the development of the economy especially in a developing nation like
Nigeria) and also achieve a trade of between liquidity and profitability. This objective can only be realized if the loan and investment
portfolio are effectively and efficiently managed.

But the problem is – can credit management in our banks actually safeguard the banking system in Nigeria against distress and
protect the interest of depositors?
How best can they access their customers to guard against the result of default in repayment of loans and advances?
Have banks been able to reconcile the dual conflicting objectives (liquidity and profitability objective) through credit and investment
management?

1.8 LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY
In the course of carrying out the research, I was faced with the time constraint. Insufficient money was also a limiting factor. Difficulty in
assessing, the banks summary and having access to the banks information required of the work was also a hindrance to the completion of
this project. These and other economic factors beyond my control limited my study.
