1.0 Introduction

1.1 An Overview Of The Study

The integral role played by the banking sector in Nigeria can neither be over looked nor over-emphasized. This is largely due to its ability to efficiently and effectively mobilizes financial resources from the surplus spending units to the deficit spending units in the economy. Also the banking sector is seen as the catalyst of economic growth and development in any country. This is due to the fact that they facilitate smooth financial transaction in all facets of the economy.

According to Osubor and Okafor (2006:42), the Nigerian Banking system is a mixture of branch banking and unit banking system. A branch banking system is that which allows a bank to have branches within and outside its head office location in the country. The bank can open an office for banking business or operation in more than one location. On the other hand, a unit banking system allows the bank to have one office location. Unit banking is not very common in Nigeria but is widely practiced in developed economies like United States of America and Britain.

As a catalyst in the process of economic development, it provides medium of exchange, which promotes exchange, and exchange is at the centre of any economic development. These roles enhance the productive capacity and overall output and employment through its transformation of the savings of individuals and businesses into investment by others.

(Ekezie 1997:6). It is therefore necessary that there must be a financial system in any modern economy, Kanu (2004:2) observed that if there is any economy that requires the existence and vibrant operations of a financial system. It is the economy of developing countries of which Nigeria is one.
This is because developing economies need the services of financial system for rapid development and sustenance.

The Nigerian financial system, which was in the lowest ebb before 1960, has become increasingly deep, broad and sophisticated in structure with so many institutions and operators that facilitate the performance of the primary role of the system. This primary role of the system brings about an efficient and healthy economy.

This project or research work therefore tries to x-ray and examine the role of the banking sector in the development of the Nigerian economy and also the problems facing the sector as well as the prospects of the Nigerian economy with increased bank financing of projects.

1.2 Statement Of The Problem

There exist a huge untapped potential for financial intermediation at the micro and rural levels of the Nigerian economy. Attempts by government in the past to fill this gap, through supply-driven creation of financing institutions and instruments, have failed due to the poor capitalizations of such scheme and restrictive regulatory and supervisory procedures among other factors. The community banks were designed to fill the gap, but their low capital base and isolated mode of operation have not enabled them to make meaningful contributions to micro-financing.

The uniqueness of the real sector brings along with it, however, many challenges for the operators rubicon to be crossed to be able to sustain the movement and command a meaningful break through in the future. One of such challenges is the opening environment. Evaluating the impact of the social, economic, legal and other component of the environment becomes crucial therefore, for operators who are eager to achieve the ultimate goal of poverty reduction, and facilitate growth and development of the economy. This situation becomes more important as the banks have the mandate to serve a sector that is widely dispersed in all ramifications.

1.3 Objectives Of The Study

  1. To examine the various regulatory and supervisory policies of the government on the banking sector.
  2. To evaluate the contributions made so far by the banking sector to the overall growth of the economy.
  3. To determine significant banking activities carried out in the financial system.
  4. To mention the contributions of the banking sector on banks within the financial system.
  5. To give recommendations on how to improve the banking sector in Nigeria.

5.0 Summary, Conclusion And Recommendation

5.1 Summary

In the course of this study it has been discovered/observed that it is not unusual to finance industry(s) cost may borrowed funds. This is so because industry(s) cost may be beyond the capacity of the sponsors to finance with their own fund alone.

Openly, the loan able funds available is depended on certain variable such as interest rates, real interest rates lending rates and their liability structure of development banks and in this research we verified the extent of the significance of each of the variables. It is also observed that increase in lending rate does not discourage borrowing by the manufacturing firms. Hence a high lending rate shows a high level of loans and advances that will be issued. It is however, when the interest and real interest rates are generally rising that the manufacturers are discourage from sourcing fund through this means.

Furthermore, the influence of the liability structures is also tested and it is observed that the liability structure of the development bank play a supportive role to the loans and advances granted to the manufacturers. It is the major determinant of the financing pattern of development bank. This layer the liability structures will tend to encourage large loans and advances since the bank tend to have a enough fund to finance large loans and advances. The effects of the liability structures development bank is with great significant the influence of these variables on the loans and advances issued by development bank are all with significance except for the real interest, which is insignificant.

This study further shows that this loans and advances received by the manufacturing firm will lead to low index manufacturing production and output contrary to economic expectation, however this effect is without significance. Thus, in this research it is observed that raising interest rate and real-interest discourage obtain of loans seems to motivate. The development banks of granting of loans and advances other factors, such as liability structures and efficient loan recovery crusade also tend to increase the ability of the development bank creating of loans and advances

5.2 Conclusion

From the research carried out, the researcher determined the relationship between the liability structures of development banks, interest rates, real interest rates, lending rate and loans and advances from the research. It was observed that though interest rates and real interest rate have negative effects on loans and advances, the interest rate is significant while the real interest rate is significant, while lending rate and liability structures of development banks have positive effect and are both significant and the relationship that exist meet the economic expectation.

Again, the relationship between loans, advances and index production was also established, it showed that loans and advances has a negatives effect on the index of production and this effect on the index of production and this effect is also insignificant, but the finding as started before, is contrary to the economic expectation which is that increase, in loans and advances should increase the index of production. This can be as a result of diversion of such funds to other uses.

From the research also the relationship between loans and advances, leasing and the output of the manufacturing firm was examined. It was observed, that loans and advances have a negative effect while advance leasing have a positive effects of advance leasing its effects determined is significant which runs contrary to the economic expectation that increased loans and advances increase output.

In conclusion, the researcher would like to state that from the findings that the liability structures of development bank influence loan able funds, in that the size of size of loans and advances, will be affected by size of the liability structures and also that interest rate and lending rate influence loan advances is that high interest rate discourage borrowing by manufacturing firms. The research contents that these loans of advance will significantly influence the index of production and output if they are honestly used to finance to project they are borrowed for.

5.3 Recommendations

From the study the recommendation will be based on the link between bank loans and advances and industrial growth has been established banks which posses the expertise to manage start-up of industry, realize that the pay from venture capital is much higher than that from normal banking activities. It is recommended that:

  1. Banks should their expertise in the areas to industry financing and management.
  2. The employment of industry managers by banks should be made mandatory in the interest growth with in the Nigeria economy, the central bank should use its regulatory powers to enforce this.
  3. Universities and school of business administration should take the pioneering roles of offering graduate education in industry management.
  4. Interest rates influence the financing of manufacturing concerns; interest rates which are favorable to these concerns should be adopted.

Though the liability structure is a major determinant of development banks, financing pattern, it should not be the sole determinant of policies affecting lending terms.
