THE EFFECT OF RECAPITALIZATION OF BANKS ON THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY

ABSTRACT

 

The global phenomenon in the financial service industry is the consolidation of the financial activities towards ensuring financial stability. It is occurring at a rapid pace due to changes in economic environment, which often alter the constraints faced by financial service firms. 

 

The main objective of this study is to examine the effect of recapitalization of banks on Nigerian economy. Secondary data was gathered from CBN statistical bulletin on GDP, bank capitalization, number of distressed banks, number of banks, from the year 1990-2007. The gathered data was analyzed using the multiple regression models on statistical package for social sciences (SPSS). The research showed a strong correlation coefficient between the dependent and the independent variables. Hence, our finding revealed that there is a significant and thus positive relationship between bank recapitalization, number of banks, number of distressed banks and GDP.

 

Hence, this research work recommends that there should be effective training and manpower development, asset management company (AMC), cross border merger, and the use of modern information and communication technology. These are to ensure stability, effectiveness and efficiency in the system. Thus, from the analyzed data and other findings, this research work concludes by recapitalization of banks as improved the Nigerian economy.
