CHAPTER ONE

1.0       INTRODUCTION

Capital occupies a vital position in any business in which bank is included capital is particularly important in the banking industry, that is adequacy is a comfort to the depositor or the shareholder. Bank are to be adequately capitalized in order to perform their role in building the nation economy.

According to the editorial of Nigeria bankers (2003) “The nature of Nigeria banking industry was healthy and sound from the independent in 1960 to their deregulation and the liberalization of the industry which started kin and middle of 1980’s, situation changes drastically since manifestation of bank distress that subsequently cleared the life of 37 banks from 1994 to 2003 in which their problems can be traced bank to the undercapitalization of these banks.

The National Economic Empowerment and Development (NEEDs) 2004, is the initiative of the Obasanjo’s administration aimed at reforming the entire economy of the nation Nigeria. Under the NEEDs    the financial service in clear with the country are to reformed, given clear with the country are to be reformed, given that “the success of NEEDS will depend in part on the ability of the financial intermediaries to play their roles by adopting the strategy of addressing low capitalization, the poor governance practice of financial  intermediaries that submit inaccurate reformation to regulatory authorities and to strengthen and rationalize the regulatory and supervisory framework in the financial sector.

The reform agenda under NEEDs is saying categorically that the low capitalization of banks must be death with achieving the goals of NEEDs.

According to Sanusi (2005) “The new capital accord, base II of 1998 tackle the issue of capital at the inception, the major element of based committee of the 1998 capital accord included the explicit unmake of capital requirement to a bank question and degree of risk and establishment of internationally, comparable minimum capital requirements. Combining the objectives if National Economic Empowerment and Development Strategy (NEEDs) and that of the new capital accord based II of 1998 it will be deduced that up with the global economic and financial trend and ensigncy the economic development of Nigeria.

Ogunniyi (2005) is of the opinion that the Central Bank of Nigeria as empowered by BOFIA from time to time determine the minimum paid up share capital of categories of bank in Nigeria in which there were upward review from time to time. The issue of recapitalization to banks to the time of #25 billion was announced by CBN governor Charies Soludo on the 6th July, 2004 generated a lot of controversies but if practically examine, it is what the nation need for overall economic growth.

According to (Ogunniyi 2005) prior to the announcement of CBN governor professor Charles Soludo raise their capital base to #25 billion by December 2005 there has been many distress stories of banks in Nigeria. 

There are banks in the sector that are goes candidates of merger and acquisition outright liquidation virtually all the bank kin this group have either overdrawn their account with CBN or have had their capital eroded by losses. It is observed that many banks merging as a means of survival at the expense of real banking operation, it is evidence that the low capitalization of the bank has make it difficult to finance the economy. Any bank with a strong capital base will serve as a shock absorber.

Low capital of banks is the causes of many stories of bank distress in the country which usually have a bad effect on the economy of a nation in term of competition, under capitalized ban will not able to compete with the other banks in the global market.
