The impact of Recapitalization of banks on lending in Nigeria

Banks demands critical view.

Since lending is one of the roles of banks which depends on the available capital base of the banks, any attempts by Central Bank to increase the pre-determination of banks lending will have measurable and remarkable impact on the whole economy.

To enhance financial stability of banking industries in Nigeria, reduce the reluctance of commercial banks to lend to the public and safeguard the stability and improvement of banks, the Central Bank of Nigeria consistently increase the minimum capital form as low as 12 million and 20Million for merchant and commercial banks relatively before 1992 to N25Billion in 2005, then in 2011, the new Capital base is now N100Billion naira.

With a stipulated minimum capital base of N25billion, some banks could not meet up and thereby merge were inevitable other banks that could not were liquidated at January 2, 2006. Union Bank of Nigeria Plc and 24 other banks scaled together 14 banks including Trade bank. They're said to be liquidated 25 banks of the solid capital base of N25Billion now have more money to lend to the public at lower interest without fear of getting liquidated.
