This study was aimed at analyzing the effectiveness of electronic banking in
Nigeria. The study appraised the use and applications of electronic banking
in Nigeria, its perception and major setbacks. The study also examined the
extent to which electronic banking contributes to achieving corporate goals
and missions and the various opportunities and benefits, which banks can
derive from the applications of electronic banking. The study equally
analyzed the security, control and risk management issues in electronic
banking in Nigeria.
To generate responses on these issues, two sets of questionnaires were
administered, one to the banks and the other to the banks' customers. It was
observed after a detailed analysis of the data generated from the study that
electronic banking in Nigeria was still evolving. Many of the banks in
Nigeria operate one form of electronic banking or the order. The major
forms of electronic banking operated by the Nigerian banks include; Mobile
Telephone Banking, Internet banking, Automated Teller Machine (ATM),
Electronic Funds Transfer and smart cards including value cards and several
forms of card based banking modes.
I n performing their role as financial intermediaries, the banks provide the
platform for the transfer of funds from surplus economic units to deficit
ones thereby helping in facilitating business transactions and economic
development. Since the funds being deployed by the banks are largely
owned by third parties (usually the depositors), it becomes necessary for
such funds to be prudently and efficiently managed so as to ensure the
sustenance of the confidence of the depositors in the banking system,
ensure that the financial system remain sound at all times and ensure that
the risk of bank failures is minimized.

This research project reviews the implementation process of the UNDP
projects on human development through skills acquisition using a particular
Skills Acquisition progamme at Sule Ahman Complex as a case study. The
critical study sought to trace the extent of the use of the feedback concept
and process in the implementation of the UNDP human development efforts.
This is against the backdrop of the fact that UNDP programmes appear not
to have achieved the desired impact on the life of the beneficiaries and the
nation at large whereas immanent efforts at the behest of the masses
achieved a commendable revolirtion especially in the footwear industry
where Bata and Lennard shoes have closed shops in the face of massive
competition from local manufacturers and retailers. The literature review
took a cursory look at the concept of development; strategies and the
different theoretical paths countries have had to go in the process of
development. The representative countries in this regard are examples of
,countries that have used different theoretical approaches in the onward
match toward economic development. Brazil represented the conventional
route advocated by the international financial institutions. China represents
the self-reliance route while the Asian Tigers represent the miracle
economies of the Orient. Certainly there was no evidence that UNDP, if it
played any role; had an impact on the economies so reviewed. Would the
story be different for Nigeria? Also, the role of communication under
different classes of ruler-ship was reviewed and indeed, the great potentials
of communication's concept of feedback In enhancing human development.
Three sets out of total of six sets of graduates' from the Skill's acquisition
were studied. The findings revealed no evidence of feedback in the
programme process. Secondly, the beneficiaries of the programme had no
financial backing from the executors of the progamne to enable them
practice what they were thought. Thus there was no basis to expect such a
poorly handled progamme to achieve the laudable goal of human
development, let alone act as a catalyst for economic revolution.
