1.2 STATEMENT OF THE STUDY
Banking industry is one of the financial institution ever known the quality of service rendered by them have been attracting critisms from people in all works of life. The government functionaries, business men, the media and the general public are all very critical of banking services. The complaints range from those of inefficiency, favourism. Long delays in cashing cheques or making withdrawals, trimness in granting loans and or credits, unfriendly attitude of bank workers and the worst of them all is bankruptcy or liquidation of bank.
Some people find it hard to believe that banks can keep money for their customers because they believe that someday the bank will liquidate and the money people suffered to make for some years will be done just like that.
Are these criticisms justified or are they just a mere rundown of baking industry because they are making profit in an era of economic slump.
