BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
1.0 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Literally, if one is asked to state the most important problem to be encountered in the course of a research study, one will obviously say it is finance. But in the course of embarking on this work, I found the contrary to be the case.
However, the greatest problem I had was inaccessibility to data source. This is manifested in the form of bureaucratic bottle of neck and skepticism. This phenomenon is further worsened or compounded if the research is found to be a student. But, this is not to under play the role of finance in research work, as all decisions has to be executed with finance.
1.1 OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
The main aim or objective of this study is to explore the level of contribution Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) made towards economic growth of Nigeria. Other objective is:
The parameter being used to determine the level of economic growth in this study is the Real Gross Domestic Product (RGDP). While those used in determining the contributions of DMBs to economic growth are money supply, interest rate and exchange rate.
However, other objective of this study is that, it will serve as a basis or reference material for other researchers who might be interested in the study of the activities of DMB’s with regards to economic growth.
1.2 RESEARCH QUESTIONS
The following research question was formulated in order to do adequate justice to the research work.
The hypotheses, which this study is out to test, are as follows:
H0: The activities of DMB’s in Nigeria do not have impact on the level of economic growth in Nigeria.
H1: The activities of DMB’s in Nigeria have impact on the level of economic growth in Nigeria.
H0: There is no significant relationship between the activities of the DMBs and Real Gross Domestic Production (RGDP) in Nigeria.
H1: There is a significant relationship between the activities of the DMBs and
Real Gross Domestic Production (RGDP) in Nigeria.
1.4 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
This study covers the activities of Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) in Nigeria as stipulated by the monetary authority- Central Bank of Nigeria.
Emphasis will be on the activities of commercial banks in the country. This is because all other DMBs such as micro – finance banks and merchant banks relate with the monetary authority through the commercial banks.
Through the activities of Deposit Money Bank’s (DMB’s) started before the political independence of Nigeria, this study shall be limited to the era of between 1987 and 2014.
This limitation was done solely for the purpose of statistical analysis. Because if this study is extended to the era of independence, the variables involved will be more than thirty, a figure which is required for ordinary least square (OLS) analysis.
