Abstract

Satisfaction is the customer’s evaluation of a product or service in terms of whether that product or serve has met their needs and expectations. Happy and satisfied customers behave in a positive manner. However, almost every Nigerian banks encounters similar problems in meeting customer’s expectation of services and customer satisfaction. It is against this backdrop that this study tries to evaluate customer’s satisfaction and its implication on banks performance in Nigeria. The study uses a primary source of data collection i.e. questionnaire structured by respondents and validity by two experts. Basically, this study adopts both the descriptive and explanatory survey design methods. Result from the study shows that customer appreciates electronic banking services but still not satisfied with the quality and efficiency of the services. This is expressed in the number of times customers physically visit the banks and length of time spent before such services are reviewed. The study concludes by suggesting that banks should improve their service delivery to justify the benefits of electronic banking products and services, by this, customer’s interest would be aroused.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1   Background to the Study

It is believed that the goal of every organization is to meet the needs and the requirements of its stakeholders. Meeting the needs and the requirements of the stakeholders will not only ensure the survival of the organization but also allow it to flourish. Customers are presumed to be one of the most important stakeholders in any organization because without them, organizations are not likely to succeed. Hence, marketers emphasize on research in the area of consumer behaviour and particularly behavioural intention. Knowledge of consumer behaviour will go along way in ensuring effective marketing policies towards the interest of customers which will eventually facilitates positive customer attitude towards the organizations. More especially, since customer behavioural intention is a strong indication of his actual behaviour

As a result of financial sector liberalization in Nigeria in the 1980s, the banking sector experienced a boom. Low entry requirements by the regulatory authority and the high premiums that could be earned through foreign exchange business led to the quick entry by new players into the lucrative banking industry. Between the period of 1985 and 1993 the number of licensed banks rose astronomically from
41 to 120 (Central Bank of Nigeria, 1995). And this led to the increase of the sector’s contribution to GDP and employment. Given that banks are important constituents of the sector, it can therefore be argued that banks in Nigeria contribute significant percentage of the country’s GDP in the recent past. (Adeoye, 2007). For instance, the sectoral reconstitution of service industry to the growth of GDP for 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 were 8.8, 8.0, 9.2, 9.9 and 10.5 respectively (CBN, 2009) The importance of the Nigerian banking sector does not limited to Nigeria alone but also spill over to most. This significant contribution of the services industry and specifically banking sector in Nigeria really warrant investigation in order to enhance the sector’s continuous growth which will eventually result in the better performance of the economy It is however noted that one of the ways through which banks can meet the expectations of their customers who are the back-bone of the banks’ business is via the understanding of the customers’ behaviour.
