CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION
1.1 BACK GROUND OF THE STUDY: 

Risk management is a practice with processes methods, and tools for managing risks, but in its broadest sense, risk management embraces all efforts taken to minimize the impact of uncertain events in business, companies financial and non-financial institutions etc. It provides a disciplined environment for pro-active decision making to determine which risks are important to deal with and to implement strategies to deal with those risks. 
The relationship between the survival of banks and national economic well being is borne our of the central position and crucial roles played by banks in the economy. The importance of the banking sector in any economy derives from its three functions namely, financial intermediation, provisions of an efficient payment system and facilitation of the implementation of monetary policies. Hence, an efficient and effective banking in essential not only for the promotion of efficient intermediation but also for the protection of depositors, maintenance of public confidence in banking institutions and above all attunement of steady economic growth.
The upsurge and the consequences of the rapid expansion on the financial system necessitated the need for greater attention to risk management and supervision of the financial institutions.
In 1990, the central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) introduce two important measures which marked the commencement of the new risk management regulations the first was the redefinition of banks capital adequacy by relating the capital requirements of banks to their risk weighed assets and not just loans and advances. It was essentially an implementation in Nigeria of the recommendation of the bank committee of Bank for International settlement (BIS) on a common international standard measurement of capital adequacy.
This provision following the deregulations as a principal factor in the risk structure of the bank.
The second measure was the climax of the new prudential banking guidelines, for the licensed banks. The prudential guidelines are not traditional monetary policy guidelines; rather they are financial stipulations to assist the banks in improving the assessment of their credit performance.
Generally, risk management involves the management of the mix of assets, liabilities and off-Balance sheet (OBS) contracts of a financial institution so as to control interest rate risks, liquidity risk and thus, optimize earning through stable net interest margins this interest rate is borne out of the regulators /supervisors, and risk manager’s duty to protecting depositors, ensuring monetary stability evolving an efficient and competitive financial system and protecting the customers.
Supervisors will have to maintain closer and regular contact with the institutions under their purview in order to be able to make informed judgments of their condition.
As a first step, the regulatory framework should through the licensing process promote the emergency of responsive corporate governance in financial institutions 
The bank mangers and directors should be made aware of the various risks that could threaten the viability or survival of their institutions and to ensure their banks are adequately measuring and managing them efficiently.
