Two hypothesis  were tested using chi-square test.
The research work revealed that:-
(1)               The net profit position of commercial banks in Nigeria have been significantly altered since the implementation of the prudential guidelines.
(2)               The provision for bad and doubtful debts of commercial banks in Nigeria have significantly increased since the implementation of the prudential guidelines.
The exercise was concluded with suggestion for further study which include:-
(1)               further research be conducted to ascertain the impact of the prudential guidelines on the overall activities of all licensed banks in Nigeria.

 CHAPTER ONE
            INTRODUCTION
1.1    STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Before the introduction of the prudential guidelines, according to CBN circular (1990) some banks were used to declaring huge but unrealized profit, otherwise referred to as “paper profit”.
            The following problems will be investigated in this study:
(a)          Did profit figures of the selected commercial banks decrease significantly post prudential guidelines?
(b)         Did provision for bad and doubtful debts increase significantly under prudential guidelines?
1.2     RATIONAL OF THE STUDY
            According to Olufun (1991) prudential guidelines seeks to infuse sanity into the chaotic banking industry.
Before the introduction of the guidelines most banks were used to declaring what is known as “paper profit “ and off – balance sheet, engagement ceased to form part of the majority commercial banks balance sheet totals. The guide line will assist banks in improving the assessment of their credit performance as well as providing banks supervisors and auditors with enhanced assessment criteria for adequate capital provision for the protection of the banks. Strict observation of prudential rules by banks contribute towards the efficiency of monetary policy.
 1.3    SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
            Obviously some literature exists on the effects of the CBN 1990 prudential guide lines on the financial statement.
However, the need to up-data such information exists and cannot be over emphasized. Therefore this research was undertaken in other to contribute to the existing literature by up-data it as much as possible.
            The major significance of this study is aimed at educating the readers on the impact of the CBN guidelines on the financial statement. It was intended to ensure prudence in credit portfolio classification, provisioning for no-performing facilities. It was necessary to have such prudence to ensure reliability in published accounting information and operating results by financial institutions plus some measures of uniformity in credit portfolio disclosures and interest accruals. According to Eghodaghe (1993) it will help the monetary authorities to know how far the guidelines have achieved it’s primary objective reduction in the declaration of paper profits by banks.
            This study will assist the commercial bank in coming up with strategies that will enhance their credit portfolio and reduce loan losses and subsequent provision for bad and doubtful debts. Finally it will provide a good reading material for students of banking and finance, management, practicing bankers including other related professionals and will expose other possible areas of research.
