Banking can be aptly described as a high-risk business. For this reason a lot of attention is directed at risk management in banking. The need of such emphasis on risk management becomes even more urgent as banks go apple with large volumes of non-performing assets. This thinking is shared by Rose (2017), who points out that while the 1950s focused on techniques for the management of banks assets and the 1960s and 1970s emphasized liability management banking in the eighties was concerned with risk-how to measure risk and how to control risk for the betterment of banks and its customers. This view of risk remains true and on issue for bank management in the lending functions.

It is obvious that the subject matter of “risk” assume considerable importance in determing business success and failures, especially in banking of course, the conventional approach to appreciating that fact in financial management is often linked to inverse between the plausible business outcomes, a high risk heads to more profit value and vice versa. In banking strictly speaking, we can extend this argument to imply that the more a bank achieves and retains liquidity (less risk) the less it gains in profitability (less returns). Unfortunately, Uncertainty-another variable also affects business outcomes is not easily understood as in the case of ‘risk” yet we must reckon with the decisive dicey and irrational subjective chances, what do we exactly mean by the term “risk” and “uncertainty”? The answer to these questions forms the basis for the discussion of the overview, which comprise of impact and implications of the term for bank management.


The risk of lending can be innumerable sometimes intractable. But there are also riskless loan in the sense that such loans are more than 100% cash collateralized In any case, the number characteristics of risk can only be analyzed meaningfully in the content of specified loans.
For this reason clearing the lending doubts begins with:-

1. Risk identification

2. Discovering and knowing the risk including their structure and incidence.

3. Enabling financial analyst identify in his credit report that a particular loan request can be associated with certain risks.

4. Enable the analysts conceivably identify and give an indication of their nature (risk) and characteristics.

5. Idently and integrating risk inherent in the so called 5os of lending (credit)

6. Finally, getting over the hump in CAMEL.


The purpose of the study is to.

1. Check the effect of lending on bank risk

2. To weigh the relationship between risk and lending

3. To check the effect of risk associated with bad debt as regards growth in the banking sector.

4. To analyses the credit process and issues

5. To analyze the need for security documentation of credit.


An indepth look into the following questions would present sufficient solution to the problems of study.

1. What is the effect of lending in the banking sector.

2. What is the relationship between risk and lending as regards growth in the banking sector

3. What are credit processes and issue

4. Is there any need for security documentation of credit?


In this research work we shall formulate a policy that is based on the assumption that lending if well articulated and efficiently executed can serve as a potent tool in the banking sector.

The following are the hypothesis of the study. 

Ho: The blending and risks of lending if properly taken cannot boost the growing rate of banks in Nigeria.

Hi: The lending and risk of lending if properly taken can boost the growing rate of banks in Nigeria.

Ho: There exist a negative relationship between risk and lending.

Hi: There exist a positive relationship between risk and lending.

Ho: Grow in the banking sector is not affected by crisis of bad debt.

Hi: Credit processed and issue should not be greatly looked into by 

Hi: Credit processes and issue should be greatly looked into.

Ho: There is need for security documentation by banks.

Hi: There is need for security documentation by banks.


Without an indepth look into risk management banks survival will be greatly threatened. This is one of the reasons why some banks fold up since there are no adequate information on risk management as regards lending in banks. Thus, this study is directed at throwing more light into the need for an overview of risk associated with bank lending i.e risk management and control in the bank sector.

The findings of the study will be useful to the following:

1. Existing banks as well as those yet to be established.

2. The management of the selected banks chosen for the study of risk management and control.

Specially, this study will provide information and relevant data to the bank management to enable her cope with the task of development in the midst of credit risk. The study is also justified as it would be relevant due to its usefulness to loan officers as well as the generality of banks who would also bear the strain of loan recovery, including the fact that the study will also make it possible to examine hoe bad debt reduction will be achieved and sustainable banking growth and also make the bank management and generality of banks to be aware of what role they have to play in the extension of credit.


This research work is limited by its main objectives being empirical analysis of risk associated with bank lending. The effect of its burden will then be analysis to see if it conforms with the course of banking.
The study as regards lending and also it will be restricted to risk management, control and lending as regards banking.
