This development in business growth and expansion required good and efficient commutation facilities. Consequently Nigeria as a rapid growth in her economic social and political spheres cannot afford the risk of poor documentation as a result of ineffectiveness in data collection and storage. Henceforth the need for computerized system in her activities has become necessary due to the increased volume of business, which involves a lot of record –keeping and information.

Computerization led to the development of the country especially in the business sector including banking where such services are needed especially First Bank Plc Enugu.
