Nigeria Banking Sector has experienced a boom-and burst cycle in the past 20-25 years. After the implementation of the structural adjustment programme (SAP) in 1986 and de-regulation of the financial sector, new banks proliferated mainly driven by attractive arbitrage opportunities in the foreign exchange market (Heiko 2007) but prior to the regulation period, financial intermediation never took off and even declined in the 1980’s and 1990’s (Capiro and Kligbiel).
According to Adam (2005), bank consolidation could be achieved by way of mergers and, or acquisition, recapitalization and proactive regulations. Banks consolidation is more than mere sprinkle of the number of banks in any banking industry, the primary objective of reforms is to guarantee an efficient and sound designed system. The banking system develop to required resilience to support the economic development of the nation by efficiently fulcrum of financial intermediation (Lemo 2005).
The sector was highly Oligopolistic with remarkable features of the market concentration and leadership (Lemo 2005) noted that there are ten banks that control more than 50% of the aggregate deposit liabilities and more than 45% of the aggregate credit.
