The banking sector in Nigeria

from Nigeria the banking sector is the second in sub-Saharan Africa behind South Africa. Total assets were worth 39.6 trillion naira (naira) in August 2019. Some small and medium-sized Nigerian banks are struggling to replenish their capital levels after a drop in oil prices triggered a foreign exchange shortage, and a recession in 2016 made it difficult for businesses to repay loans.

Some commentators have said that the big banks were guilty of reckless lending to the oil sector when oil prices were high. After the fall, oil prices recovered and banks again extended credit to the sector. High unemployment, sluggish economic growth and vulnerability to oil prices remain areas of concern.

Investment deterrents

Corporate governance is seen as one of the biggest challenges facing Nigerian banks, and financial mismanagement or senior management misconduct has hampered their performance and sustainability. No foreign bank has entered the sector in the past 10 years. The regulations of the central bank state that the total investment of foreign banks in any of the top 10 local banks must not exceed 10% of their total capital.
