CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

For one to be a leader in any given organization in the modern society, such a person must be literate and a reasonable knowledge which must be put to use. A leader most possesses good qualities of communication and techniques of persuasion, he should have knowledge of negotiation and peaceful settlement of dispute, and he must be familiar with the problem areas as well as potentialities of those being lead.

1.1     BACKGROUND OF STUDY

          One can be successful by the recognition of two basic facts, that men are dynamic, and are entirely different from each other. Human being respond not only to the carrot and stick but also to ambition and patriotism .a good, desirable, commendable, popularly acceptable leader is the one who lead by example, has integrity, simplicity, accountability, companion, the ability to listen to it subordinate ‘s complain or need.

          The person who occupies leadership possession should has human feels and exhortation to his followers by the process called communication since leadership involve influencing others in a group. This emerges in a group to pursue a common goal or objective due to certain quality or qualities by the group. Leaders play crucial and critical roles in helping groups, organizations, and societies to achieve their goals; for instance, the governor at the state level or president of a country, traditional rulers in their respective domains. However, leadership in this context will be discussed in relation to business organization development.

          The theory  of leadership, the trait approach traced back to the ancient Greek philosopher; Plato, who concluded that Greek men who were born with some certain traits that distinguish them from non-leaders, primary , exercised leadership potential in other words, leaders were born and not made, given the disenchantments with the trait approach to leadership. Researchers in the late 1940s began to shift attention to examine the relationship between leader’s behavior and subordinate satisfaction and performance. This is known as behavioral approach.

          The current approach to leadership style is to inferences the particular style to the situation faced by the leaders most current workers view leadership style as a continuation from extreme employee’s orientation to extreme tasks orientation. The above approaches, leadership style, however, must develop their own viewpoints after considering their assumptions and inclinations. Effective leadership set great value on participation, mutual goal setting and opens link communication system confronting rather than avoiding problems, tern building and trust.

1.2     HISTORITICAL VIEW POINT OF THE CASE STUDY

          The history of First Bank can be traced back to 1894 and the Bank of British West Africa. The Bank originally served the British shipping and trading agencies in Nigeria. The founder, Alfred Lewis Jones, was a shipping magnate who originally have a monopoly on importing silver currency into West Africa through his Elder Dumpster Shipping Company.  According to its founders, without a Bank, Economist were reduced to using batter and a wide variety of mediums of exchange, leading to unsound practices. A bank could provide a secured room for deposit and also a uniform medium of exchange. The bank primarily financed foreign trade, but did little lending to indigenous Nigerians, who had little to offer as collateral for loans.

          In 1957 bank of British West Africa changed its name to Bank of West Africa(B.W.A). After Nigeria’s independent in 1960, the bank began to extend more credit to indigenous Nigerians. At the same time, Citizens began to trust British Banks since there was an independent financial control mechanism and more citizens began to patronize the new Bank of West Africa.

          In 1965 Standard Bank acquired Bank of West Africa and changed its acquisitions name to Standard Bank of Africa. In 1969, Standard Bank of West Africa incorporated its Nigerian operations under the name Standard Bank of Nigeria. In 1971, Standard Bank of Nigeria listed its shares on the Nigerian Stock Exchange and placed 13% of its shares capital with Nigerian investors. After the end of Nigerian civil War, Nigeria’s Military Government sought to increase Local Control of the retail banking sector. In response, now Standard chartered bank reduced its stake in Standard Bank Nigeria to 38%.  Once it had lost majority control, Standard Chartered Wished to signal that it was no longer responsible for the bank and the bank changed its name to First Bank of Nigeria in 1979. By then, the bank had recognize and had more Nigerian Directors than Ever.

          In 1982 First Bank Opened a branch in London, then in 2002 it converted to a subsidiary, FBN Bank (UK). Its most recent international expansion was the opening in 2004 of a representative office in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 2005 it acquired NBC international Bank Limited and FBN (Merchant Bank) Ltd. Paribas and a group of Nigerian investors Had founded NBC in 1982 as a Merchant bank; it became a commercial Bank in 2002.

          In June 2009, Stephen Olabisi Onasanya was appointed group Managing Director and chief executive officer, placing Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, who had been appointed Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. Onasanya was formerly Director of banking operations and services. In 2014 First Bank marked 120yrs from when it was founded as the |Bank of British West Africa. The Bank reviled the rational for the refresh as part of a wider strategic plan to ensure that as a group,  FBN holding was delivering more efficient service that were closer in line with the need of their customer. The refreshed identity was reviled on Jan 27, 2014 in Lagos at two separate events for Staff, Partners, Suppliers and friends.
