ABSTRACT
The major purpose of this study was to determine the analysis of credit management techniques in the Nigerian banking system. The population of the study consisted of staff from the three selected banks in Imo State; the sample for the study was 45 staff out of 60, which was drawn using simple random sampling. Two hypothesis were formulated which guided the study. A 19 item questionnaire was developed validated and tested for its reliability; chi-square was used to test the hypothesis at 0.05 level of significance. The major findings are Goodwill is the major factor that influence the banks Mode of advancing loans to customers, Poor credit analysis result to bad debts, Poor supervision of credit officers causes bad debts. The findings had led us to conclude that success in accessing credit mismanagement and the causes lies in the ability of the bank to fashion out workable credit management techniques and following it to the core, the implementation of these procedures.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION
1.1 GENERAL OVERVIEW OF THE STUDY

The provision of banking services to the economy of a country such as Nigeria has remained a life wire through which the economy grows. The provision of these services requires every attention because of its importance growth, the bank provides loans and advances which could either be long-term or short-time. The inevitability of these services rendered by the banks in economic growth explains why the government has been so keen in stipulating aggregate ceiling on credit creation as well as sectorial allocations in the government credit guidelines contained in the monetary circulars. The banks and other financial institutions are therefore, required to comply with these specifications during any fiscal year.
The type of bank and its deposit base in line with the credit guideline determine the credit creation ability of that bank.
While answering to this clarion call of financing economic growth of the nations, banks also have to guide against incidence of loan defaults as this risks their own business position as they read mainly with depositors funds, which could be demanded any time by these depositors.
Therefore, banks are required to be prudent in credit extension to avoid or at least minimize the incidence of loan default, which has caused eventual collapse of many banks in recent time.
In view of the obvious consequences a bank could face if so engulfed in loan losses and band debts, this work poised to research on the management of bank loans to minimize the incident of substandard, doubtful and lost loans in Nigerian banks.
Meanwhile, classification is made if bank loans according to performance. These classifications include: the active, substandard, doubtful and lost loans. The active loans are those ones which were purely made with full consideration of the cannons of good lending and have no shown and sign of good default in terms of repayment.
The substandard loans are those made with some irregularities or duly expired but not yet renewed and indicates signs of default. The doubtful loans are those loan whose accounts are kept dormant for a long period of time. The lost loans are those that have defiled all attempts of recovery and thus, written off the banks assets.
Loan and advance constitute the major sources of operating income of banks as they act the most profitable assets for employment of bank funds. In as much as banks desire income from loans and advances through interests accruable to these facilities, they also run the risk of losing both the principal and interest if the credit administration procedure is weak.
Banks being well aware that some of their loans and advances must always appears bad in spite of qualitative and quantitative techniques applied, set aside huge amount of money as provisions for lost and doubtful loans. The existence of substandard loans despite all these measures has found its roots in the character of the borrowers and the experience of credit officers.
Having gone this far, it is discernible that the issue is not fashioning a system whereby incidence of loan default can entirely be stopped. The crux of the matter is to fashion a system from the onset whereby the incidence of substandard, doubtful and loans losses can be cushioned to a bare minimum.

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
The peculiar nature of services rendered to the economy by the banking industry is the basis of its problems. It mobilizes funds from surplus units and makes them available to the deficit units for productive ventures. Thus, management of credit is the most sensitive and delicate aspect of the banking industry and are faced with problems such as:
- Bad and doubtful debt, which are caused by poor credit management and other exogenous factors
- Poor credit and loan supervision by credit officials.
- Unqualified credit officers who would not abreast the tenets of good lending
- The sharp practices of some unscrupulous business men who are seeking the credits also constitute a major problem for banks
- Another problems facing banks is the acceptance of irregular worthless and unperfected securities as a cushion for bank lending.

With respect to the incidence of substandard and lost loans in Nigerian banks. We shall be looking at how banks carry out credit administration and management so as to:
- Determine to actual credit administration

Time constraints was another big problems encountered by the researcher; there was limited time, which did not give much room for the researcher to carryout the research as it ought to be.
Dearth f standard information from the banks used as a case study and lack of research facilities was another challenge encountered by the researcher.
