This research project work was undertaken with a purpose of determining and evaluation of the effect of computerizing banking service and its efficiency on the banking services in Nigeria.

The effect of computerizing the banking services on the behavioural aspect of management information system are Aggression Avoidance and projection on the other hand, other operational pressures are maintaining the system; personal problems in the book-keeping department, maintaining book-keeping machines.

Expanding volume of operation; need to accommodate the increasing volume, need to maintain or reduce cost.  Unsatisfactory output; errors in terms of reports and statement delays in work processing.  Needs or system change.

The study has a library research and empirical study.  Additional information were collected from journals bullions textbooks and newspapers etc.  It was been clear to me from what I found out that computerizing banking services plays a very big positive effect on Nigeria Banking Services.  It provide better information for commercial loan management improves the speed limit & accuracy of services to customers, and also provides necessary data input for advanced financial information systems.

It leads to problem awareness, permit feedback on the implementing of decision, it support problem analysis and selection of alternatives.  It influences the choice of the most appropriate option.  Also computer are used in implementing strategies or plans for they can also be used for drawing up the budget in constituting investment portfolio and in bank’s balance sheet management.

From the word been mentioned above it is quite clear that if Nigeria banks continue to encourage the use of computerized banking service that Nigeria would have a better standard of living & the work of science & technology as regards to computer services.

Recommendation and conclusion






1.1              BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The need for information is great and necessary in banking sector because of the nature of their business quick and accurate decision must be taken, like in the money market foreign exchange etc.  Banks must react quickly to change the interest rate and volatile variable in their operation where as in the production industries, mistakes can be rectified and losses been minimized.

Millions of naira may be irretrievably lost in the banking industries as a result of wrong decision based on increase information, computer is employed prominently by Nigeria banks at all the three management operations, management control and strategies.  Leading is the most important activity of banks.

The need for change as for effective use of computer lending office arose as a result of banks experiencing growing competition from officers lenders, funds available are thereby increase move costly time and savings with the result that the average cost of funds will be relatively higher, loans are becoming move complex and also great concern for the profitability of customer’s total bank relationship rather than profit derived from the use of specific service.  The transformation process could be seen as the management process which has to be effective to ensure the feasibility of working on the set inputs to produce not only the service, but also to come up with reasonable profit for the shareholder and the public at large.

1.2              STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

The computer has for many years been used for financial planning in Nigeria banks.  Information is required to complete every step involved in planning either objective definition and target decision, forecasting, calculating planning gaps definition constraints and means.  Through the use of computer leads to effective use of information’s, like problem awareness, support problem analysis and selection of alternative, influence the choice of most appropriate options, permit a feedback on the implementation plan which can be used for drawing up the budget for constituting investment portfolio and bank balance sheet management.

In area of organizational control In banks, the computer has been found useful, especially in terms of quick signal which bring about fast awareness of problems.

Generally, computer system makes it possible to centralize authority and control in the banking services.


To examine the extent to which computerization of banks has affected or contributed to the banking service in Nigeria.  To make recommendation on how to improve the efficiency of banks in Nigeria by using computerized banking operations.  To determine the effect of computerized banking towards future development in the banking industry with an eye in the direction of improving its competitive position.

To correct unsatisfactory output i.e. Errors in deports and statement delay in processing work and need for system change.


It is hoped that this study will help to ascertain the extent to which computerization the extent to which computerization of banking service, it effect on the efficiency of banking service in Nigeria.  These is particularly important for making bank policies which effect computerization of banking service in Nigeria and its effect, in which to achieve their arm and objectives.

It is important to note that this study will help to identify the drawback and also solve the Nigeria errors in supplying rightful information concerning banking service.

It can also be useful to the monetary authority because, it suggest the monetary & fiscal policy.
