A commercial bank can be defined as an institution that accept deposits from customer and repay cash on demand. It can also be defined as financial institution that accepts deposits and other valuables from the public for safe keeping with the sole aim of making profit.

The idea of banking system was introduced in Nigeria 1892 with the establishment of an Africa banking co-operation. Another one was established in 1894 which was named British West Africa Bank. The British West Africa bank was later changed to chase merchant bank to become Standard Bank of Nigeria. In 1899, bank of 1917, Nigeria bank comes to existence but later, it was taken over bank of British West Africa in 1912. In 1917, it was the establishment of Nigeria Barclays bank.

The first indigenous bank came into existence in 1929, which was named Industrial and Commercial bank. Also, in 1931 witnessed the establishment of Nigeria Merchant Bank. Although, it was later closed down due to lack of funds, bad management coupled with large scale corruption.

Furthermore, the national bank of Nigeria was established on a sound footing but, due to greater post war activities, the bank was closed down. In addition between two survived bank which are; Africa Continental Bank (ACB) and Agbomogbe Bank which is now called Wema Bank Plc.

It was a booming era between 1957 and 1952 because eight banks were established but 1954, seven banks were closed down only Merchant bank survived. It was not long that the only surviving bank out of the seven that closed down in 1954 had its license withdrawn by the state government as a result of mismanagement, one misuse of government fund.

All banks in Nigeria were either owned by the state government or. federal government but this trend did not continue to the policy of privatization and commercialization embarked upon during Babangida’s Administration in 1989.

Commercial banks play very important roles in the allocation of fund to individuals and business organizations in the society.

One of the principal functions of commercial banks is the creation of credit facilities which is the process of distributing and disbursing of fund to potential user, at favourable terms and condition and making sure that the funds are effectively utilized to ensure the anticipation benefit to borrowing and lending banks.

Credit facilities are being enjoyed by the account holder i.e. individual and business organization respectively. It can be listed that traditional function of banks is financial intermediation i.e. their real is concerned with the monetary aspect of the economy which involve the mobilization of fund from savers scattered in the society and there are transfer as a credit to investors.

There are average business entrepreneurs who could not or were able to raise enough funds from their trade for expansion purpose or from other sources like through friends and others.

The major factors that led to failure and distress of many commercial banks in Nigeria of recent is government frequent interventions. Despite the huge and various policies of the government on credit creation, the Nigeria economy seems not to have shown any meaningful development in terms of credit utilization.
