ABSTRACT
This study examined customer relationship marketing and customer satisfaction in Nigerian banking industry. The study aimed at ascertaining if the antecedents of customer relationship marketing had a significant impact on customer satisfaction. The population of the study comprises customers of several banks located in the Ugbowo campus, Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria. This is a cross-sectional survey research design. A total of One hundred (100) questionnaires were administered to customers who had accounts with the banks listed in the questionnaire (First Bank, GTB, Wema, Fidelity Bank and Others) based on convenience sampling method. The total of 100 questionnaires administered were all completed and returned. This represents a response rate of 100 percent. The data obtained were coded and analyzed using means, standard deviation, and frequency distribution which were used for descriptive analyses while ordinary least squares (OLS) method was used to analyze the impact of customer relationship marketing antecedents on customer satisfaction.The findings of the study revealed that trust and competence were the only two antecedents of customer relationship marketing which had a significant impact on customer satisfaction, while commitment, communication, and conflict handling had no significant impact on customer satisfaction. Based on the findings, we recommended that banks improved on their relationship marketing efforts, enhancing trust and competence, as well as improving commitment, communication, and conflict handling capabilities in order to have a more satisfied customer base.
CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1Background to the Study
The banking industry is of today highly competitive. The main products offered by banks are considered homogenous. It is thus becoming essential for banks to differentiate themselves from competitors by providing more in their product offering through long-term relationships with customers (Hefferman, O’’Neill, Travaglione, Droulers, 2008 as cited in Martin, Rajesh, Mame, samuel, Isaac, 2015). Customer relationship marketing is a much better means for bank to develop a unique and lasting relationship with their customers in today’s highly competitive global financial market (Martin et al., 2015). The banking industry is dependent on its customers, sustainability of operations is a requirement, and it can be attained by satisfying customers which can be done by forging lasting relationships with customers. By having good relations and adopting customer relationship marketing in their practice and strategies they thus have a better understanding of their customers’ needs. “Customer relationship marketing helps to foster customer loyalty and reduce cost” (Ndubisi, 2004).
The working environment where banks operate is posed with intense competition, and the work environment is constantly changing. Banks top management are becoming aware of the consequence of creating strong relationships with customers so as to ensure lasting profitability and sustainable core revenues. Marketing focus is thus moving towards customers. In the past fifteen years a drastic movement has happened in terms of the ways that industrial companies relate with their customers and suppliers. This change became present when companies realized that for them to have competitive advantage which was sustainable over time in the global economy, they had to become trusted participants in several networks(Morgan and Hunt, 1994 as cited in Abdullah, abdelmo, abdalelah, 2014).
This research therefore examines relationship marketing and customer satisfaction in Nigerian banking industry.

Long-term relationship with customers is important in sustaining profitability over the long run, as well as securing competitive advantage over competitors and this can only be attained when Customer Satisfaction (CS) exists, a means of attaining CS is through CRM. The major problem of this study is therefore to know if the antecedents of CRM impacts customer satisfaction.
