1.2 Statement of the Problem
There is no gainsaying that the present economy deserves a sound, stable and better banking performance following the causative factors, such as unethical and unprofessional practices, poor management quality among others which contributed to low level of bank performance and sometimes lead to failure of bank. This has caused many researches into deliberation on the problem case; Fatimoh (2011) performed a chi-square operation in analyzing 200 questionnaires distributed and also performed a cross sectional data analysis using return on capital employed, current ratio, debt ratio, dividend cover and retention ratio. Adegbami, Ofoegbu and Fasanya (2011) performed a pooled time-series OLS on corporate governance, inflation, interest rate, broad money supply and banks performance as considered variables for a period of thirty years. Bubbico, Giorgino and Monda (2012) performed also a cross sectional econometric analysis for a period of twenty years using corporate governance index, ownership concentration, ROA, sales growth, market capitalization index and Tobin’s Q as the variables for their model. Akingunola, Adekunle and Adedipe (2013) performed an OLS econometric analysis on a time series data for thirty-five years using banks’ health, liquidity and profitability as variables for its model. In anticipation to fill the gap of research in this course, the researcher has decided to acknowledge the problems and create an objective in solving these problems.
