PERCEPTION OF BANK CUSTOMERS ON CBN'S CASHLESS POLICY IN NIGERIA

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1   BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

The recent innovation of technology for financial transactions poses interesting questions for policy makers and financial institutions regarding the suitability of current institutional arrangements and availability of instruments to guarantee financial stability, efficiency, effectiveness of monetary policy and achievement of sustainable economic growth in Nigeria considering the perception of the populace (Ajayi and Ojo, 2006). Over the course of history, different forms of payment systems have been in existence. Initially, “trade by barter” was common. However, the problems of barter such as the double coincidence of wants necessitated the introduction of various forms of money. Nevertheless, pundits have been predicting the complete demise of study instruments and the emergence of potentially superior substitute for cash or monetary exchanges that is cashless society (Wikipedia 2011). Since Nigeria‘s Independence in 1960, there have been different governments, constitutional reforms, change in economic policies and banking reforms, mainly directed at enhancing social welfare and achieving developmental goals but there has been no substantial positive change in Nigeria‘s Human Development Indicators.

Banks are the linchpin of the economy of any country. They occupy central position in the country’s financial system and are essential agents in the development process (Adewoye, 2013). By intermediating between the surplus and deficit savings units within an economy, banks mobilize and facilitate efficient allocation of national savings, thereby increasing the quantum of investments and hence national output. In a developing economy such as Nigeria, financial sector development has been accompanied by structural and institutional changes and the sector generally has long been recognized to play a crucial role in the economic development of the nation.

Monetary Policy is the regulation of the money supply and interest rates by a Central Bank in order to control inflation and stabilize currency. The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) undertakes monetary policy in order to maintain Nigerian’s external reserve, safeguard the international value of the legal currency, promote and maintain monetary stability. Similarly, it acts as a sound and efficient financial system in Nigeria, as a banker and financial adviser to the Federal Government and as lender of last resort to the banks.

Consequently, in pursuance of its functions in compliance with the core mandate, the CBN as a result of change which is a constant factor, has engaged in series of reformations aimed at both making the financial system formidable and enhancing the overall economic performance of Nigeria so as to place it on the right path in tune with global trends. The payments system plays a very crucial role in any economy, being the channel through which financial resources flow from one segment of the economy to the other. Therefore, it represents the major foundation of the modern market economy. Essentially, there are three pivot al roles for the payments system namely; the Monetary Policy role, the financial stability role and the overall economic role (CBN, 2011).

1.2   STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

Most Less Developed Countries like Nigeria are on the transition from a pure cash economy to cashless one for developmental purposes. To reduce the cost of banking services (including cost of credit) and drive financial inclusion by providing more efficient transaction options and greater reach and to improve the effectiveness of monetary policy in managing inflation and driving Nigerian economic growth (CBN,2013). In addition, the cashless policy aims to curb some of the negative consequences associated with the high usage of physical cash in the economy, including: high cost of cash: high risk of using cash, high subsidy, informal economy and inefficiency & corruption (CBN, 2011).

Customers demand efficient, fast and convenient services. Customers want a Bank that will offer them services that will meet their particular needs (personalized Banking) and support their

Business goals for instance; businessmen want to travel without carryout cash for security reasons. They want to be able to check their balance online, find out if a cheque is cleared, transfer funds among accounts and even pay their bills online. However, this study is examining the perception of Bank customers on the CBN’s cashless policy in Nigeria.

2.  What is the perception of bank customer on the reliability and effectiveness of the CBN’s cashless policy in Nigeria?

The following are the significance of this study:

1.  Results of this study will educate the general public on the perception of bank customer on the CBN’s cashless policy in Nigeria.

2.  This research will also serve as a resource base to other scholars and researchers interested in carrying out further research in this field subsequently, if applied will go to an extent to provide new explanation to the topic
