CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION:

Liquidity is crucial to the on-going viability of any bank as liquidity can have dramatic and rapid effects on even well capitalized banks.

When a crisis develops in a bank as a result of other problems such as deterioration in asset quality, the time available to the bank to address the problem will be determined by the liquidity therefore, the measurement and management of liquidity are amongst the most activities of banks.

1.4      BACKGROUND OF STUDY.

The term liquidity means the ease with which an asset

can be turned to cash with certainty Orjih John (1996:152).

          Liquidity in banks can be defined as the capacity of the bank to meet promptly its current obligations that is its customers demand.

          A bank is considered to be liquid when it has sufficient cash and other short term financial instruments like treasure bill, treasury certificate and call money in its portfolio together with the ability to raise funds quickly from other sources to enable it meet its payment obligation and other financial commitments in a timely.

          How much liquidity to hold and in what form constantly disturbs bank management.  Banks are also required to comply with the cash reserve requirements (CRR) set by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

          During periods of expanding economic activities banks are frequently faced with attractive loan situations, which can only be met if banks maintain adequate liquidity.

          In Nigeria, Banking activities are registered strictly by the banking act of 1969 was amended under the control of the central bank of Nigeria.  As a result of these regulations the banks required to hold specific assets equal to certain other liability in liquid form.  This is known as the cash reserve requirement (CRR), liquidity ratio and stabilization securities issued by the central bank.

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM.

          The most profitable activity of a commercial banks is the lending of money by loan or overdraft but every time a bank increases its advances to customers it increases at the same time the amount that are likely to be withdrawn in cash.  Most borrowers simply wish to be able to draw cheques up to the amount of their overdraft but some of them may want cash and in general a certain proportion of loans will be taken in cash.  This banker is torn between two conflicting motives:  On the one hand he would like to expand his loans in order to make more profit and on the other hand, he is anxious to hold sufficient cash so that he can at all times fulfill his obligations to pay cash on demand J.L Hanson (1970:37).

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY.

          The impact of liquidity problem:-  This is the purpose of this study to look at problems encountered by bank managers responsible for liquidity management.

          It will also focus on guidelines set by the CBN and other regulatory body for the development of liquidity management in Nigeria banks.

          Finally, the impact of liquidity problems will be looked at on how it affects profitability, loans and advances to customers of commercial banks and the Nigerian economy.

1.4        OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY.

The objective of this study on the impact of liquidity problem is to find out.

1.       If the CBN has enough policies or guidelines put in place to help the banks fight this problem.

2.           To find our banks for the correction of this problem.

3.           The overall impact of liquidity problems on loans and advances to customers of the commercial banks.

4.           To find out the liquidity problems in relation to customers deposit.

5.           The profitability of commercial banks in Nigeria.

1.5    RESEARCH QUESITIONS.

1.       What is the impact of liquidity problems in the Nigerian banking industry?

          By this we main how the effect of excess cash holding by banks in their vault affect their progress and equally how the non-holding of cash affect their transportation too.  This effect could be negative in that making banks to give out loans and  banks.

2.           How important is liquidity management?

Liquidity management is very essential in that liquidity transcends the individual bank, as a liquidity short fall in a single institution can have system-wide repercussions.  Consequently, the analysis of liquidity requires bank managements to measure, not only liquidity positions of their banks, on an ongoing basis, like also to examine how finding requirements are likely to evolve under crisis scenarios.    

3.  WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LIQUIDITY AND PROFITABILITY IN THE NIGERIAN BANKING INDUSTRY?

     Both are interwoven in a particularly way in that in providing for liquidity one has to also check out ways of being profitable.

     Liquidity is maintained by banks for the primary purpose of meeting depositors demand which will help this banks to have a good standing and reputation with the public.  On the other hand banks are set up to make profit and their profitability portion is an index of measuring the performance of the bank.  Which will also help them to meet up with their own financial obligations.  Orjih John (1996:152-154).

     SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY.

          The significance of this research work is aimed at getting relevant information and solutions to liquidity problems facing the banking sector in Nigeria.

          The researcher hopes it will be of immense benefit to  the following sectors.

i.             The banking sector in Nigeria especially bank managers involved in liquidity management.

ii.           The government sector.

iii.          The monetary and fiscal policy department of the central bank of Nigeria.

iv.          Finally for countries facing similar problems.
