INTRODUCTION
1.1       BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
            In a modern Economy, there is a distinction between surplus economics units and the deficit economics units and in a separation of the saving investment mechanism. This has necessitated the existence of financial institutions whose jobs includes the transfer of funds from savers to investor. One of such institution is the commercial Bank.
            The commercial Banks are regarded as banks because they create money. They do this by establishing chequing account for their customers for whom they create demand deposited and pay out cash on demand.
            Traditionally, the essential features of a commercial bank lies on the service it renders to its numerous customers.

            The primary function of commercial bank is the extension of credit to worthy borrowers.
            Commercial bank are rendering a great financial services. Through their actions production is increased, capital investments are expanded and a higher standard of living is realized.
            Additionally, this functions are very important in that they distinguish bank from all other financial institutions and very unique position to manipulate the level and volume of demand deposite by limiting borrowing.
            Credit extension management is one of the most intricate function performed by banks. This is so because loan portfolio is the greatest risk in the banking activity. Hence if due care and prudence is not exercised, it might result in bad debts. Bad debts are normal business expense and must be charged as such when calculating the profit and loss for the period.
            Besides, business sin the other hand cannot exist without debt. It is now impossible to achieve any thing weather as an individual or as a group of person without going into some form of debt or the other. It seen to be generally agreed that debt is essential to business.
1.2       STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
            The volume and value of bank loans which have became classified has continued to increase even a faster rate than the increase in bank lending. This has adverse effect on banks since it effects their cash flow and impairs their profitability.

A study on this subject will therefore be a welcome addition to the existing volume of banking literature.
            Effective loan management recognize that beyond the application of sand banking principles whenever a loan is made, there is need for urgency in appreciating the point when loan begins to look doubtful arriving at a decision as to the appropriate action and in taking that action. This will enable the bank to at best obtain full repayment including accrued interest.
            In the face of increase competition among banks, future profits are likely to be harder to come and since bad debts are a charge against profit. It is appropriate that we review the methods proportions and margin of lending to bad and doubtful debts.
            Hence the significance if this study to bankers. Beside the bankers more than ever before will appreciate an appraisal of their lending and control mechanism now that are expected to lend under tight monetary conditions, with it negative effects on investment outcomes.
