CHAPTER ONE
 INTRODUCTION
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
It is believed that the goal of every organization is to meet the needs and as rations of its stakeholders. Meeting these needs and aspiration of the stakeholders will not only ensure the survival of the organization but also allow it to flourish. Customers are the most important stakeholders in any organization because without them, organizations are not likely to succeed.
Organization must focus on what customers’ needs and wants are so as to be able to satisfy their needs for patronage and build good customers relationship that last longer because without them, organizations are not likely to succeed.
    Loyal customers are valuable asset. This is particularly so in mature markets were other sources of competitive advantage can be quickly eroded, hence, it is not surprising that many banks are adopting customers responsive strategies, which use detailed information’s about customers to tailor or design products and services that meet their satisfaction. The aim is to ensure that the most valuable customer receive the best treatment that meet his/her satisfaction.
To ensure customers satisfactions, organization (Banks) try to adopt customers’ responsive strategies that are far easier to conceive and implement within organization whose history inclines them towards a relationship mindset of a clean start without the drag of history and past practice before the banking reform era.
Although, these strategies are difficult to implement but when they work, they are source of a powerful competitive advantage that are very difficult for rival banks to imitate. This customer’s responsive strategy is bound to have advantage to the bank if it delivers superior customers value by personalizing the interactions, demonstrates trustworthiness between the bank and customers and also tightens connection with its customers. It is clearly noted that the effects of customers’ behavior or satisfaction on the performance of the banking sector are perceptible. Given that the contemporary customers are more informed than ever before, LeBoreuf (1987) posited that meeting their expectation is increasingly becoming more difficult. They want to get value for their money as they perceived it. Given the relatively high incidence of poverty which is around 54.0 (CBN, 2009). Consumers in Nigeria were found to be dissatisfied with the quality of services/products provided by banks (Woldie, 2003). Again these call for investigation on how customers behave with regards to the charges of commercial banks in Nigeria. Service quality is the result of human interaction between the service provider and the customer (Liu, 2005).
1.2    STATEMENT OF RESEARCH PROBLEM:
    One of the challenges of modern banking is to understand their customers’ needs so as to respond to such needs and wants with a view to satisfy customers and to achieve their organizational short and long term goal.
    Before the banking reform in 1980s, there has been inadequate banking products and poor service delivery. Customers were dissatisfied and were at the receiving end. Banks decides on what products are service they give to their customers, sometimes, delays in customer transaction with various complains without quick resolution. This creates a disequilibrium gap between customers’ needs and banks product and service delivery. As a result of these customers were not satisfied.
This research work is intended to examine the extent to which customers are satisfied with bank products and service delivery using Guarantee Trust Bank customers in University of Benin and Uselu Branch, Benin City as a case study.
