CHAPTER ONE

 

  1. INTRODUCTION

 

Commercial Banks operate to mobilize deposits from the populace and

 

keep. Some in trust payable on demand. Through the performance of this role, Banks act as reservoir for surplus funds and thus lend safe portion of these funds to clients that have genuine needs for them. The banks have special responsibility to ensure effective management of these funds kept in trust with them by depositors. Chester A Rude puts it that the way and manner in which funds are handled “determines whether they are laying a sound foundation or creating future problems for either the borrower, themselves or the economy” If bankers unnecessary withhold credit, the business suffer and so do the economy.

 

Lending activities are prominent at all levels of our economy, which gave rise to loan management and credit administration. This credit analysis, documentation, disbursements and monitoring of loan to ensure repayment of both principal and interests on due dates becomes pertinent.

 

One of the goals credit extension is to achieve prompt repayment on due dates thus loan management typically involves credit appraisal and administration.

 

Lending carries a reasonable portion of resource exposure of commercial Banks in Nigeria.

guided in their operations by so many regulatory bodies in order to avert bad lending and liquidity problems. Operations and prudential guideline by the Central Bank of Nigeria are always in place.

 

Inspite of measures, which is aimed at protecting depositors and other public interests, the incidence of bad and doubtful debts resulting from lending activities has been on the increase in commercial Banks in Nigeria. This is as a result of negation in the primary objectives of granting credit and profit objectives of banks, hence the need for an appraisal of the present lending and credit administration techniques.
