This chapter provides the background to the Nigerian banking industry in the year 2001 with the Nigerian banks in focus.
It is indisputable that inspite of the competition going on in the already existing banks within the industry. Many new generation banks still spring up. These are as a result of several factors like nature of services rendered by the banks their expansion plans, the quest to meet up with profit margins acceptable by the body of stake holders, seeking markets for their services etc.
During this period the banking industry was misrepresented the banks who on longer consider the satisfaction needed by their consumer, but are constantly reminded of the measures of expansion and growth in line with their competitors.
The quest for opulence has crept not only into the bank, but in all the members of staff themselves and now manifesting into high rate of malpractices in the banking sector.
One important variable of the desired expansion in the banking industry is the cost of staffing, studies have shown that bankers are well paid to encourage and motivate them to their respective duties.
In order to meet up with these costs. Maximum efficiency needs to be put into avoid deficit.
As revealed by Nik Ogbulie viewing it from all indications available, the banking industry is growing in leaps and bounds. But what is yet to be fully determined is whether this growth is informed by increasing rate of efficiency in banking management or increasing demand of banking services by users of the industry. This becomes important because the perceive rate of growth is not industry-wide.
