CHAPTER ONE

  • Introduction

A manager can good decision, sound plans and establish an effective organizational structure if the employees work hard and are being motivated. Communication occurs when a person transmits meaning, understanding message to another person or group.

Having known this, it is of require good communication since it is regarded as the foundation upon which an organization system must be developed and maintained to get an idea passed across to other in order to bring intended performance.

Furthermore, without the process of communication the various part of organization would not be bound together and the organization would not exist.

In order to successful, the organization needs people who can communicate efficiently and efficiency.

 

By and large, communication (from Latin commūnicāre, meaning “to share”) is a purposeful activity of exchanging information and meaning across space and time using various technical or natural means, whichever is available or preferred.

Communication requires a sender, a message, a medium and a recipient, although the receiver does not have to be present or aware of the sender’s intent to communicate at the time of communication; thus communication can occur across vast distances in time and space. Communication requires that the communicating parties share an area of communicative commonality. The communication process is complete once the receiver understands the sender’s message.

Discursive communication three primary steps:

  • Thought: First, information exists in the mind of the sender. This can be a concept, idea, information, or feeling.
  • Encoding: Next, a message is sent to a receiver in words or other symbols.
  • Decoding: Finally, the receiver translates the words or symbols into a concept or information that a person can understand.

There are a range of verbal and non-verbal forms of communication. These include body language, eye contact, sign language, haptic communication, and chronemics. Other examples are media content such as pictures, graphics, sound, and writing. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities also defines the communication to include the display of text, Braille, tactile communication, large print, accessible multimedia, as well as written and plain language, human-reader, augmentative and alternative modes, means and formats of communication, including accessible information and communication technology. Feedback is a critical component of effective communication (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.htm).

THE ROLE OF ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRIMES COMMISSION AND PROMOTING SANITY IN NIGERIA FINANCIAL SYSTEM (A CASE STUDY OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTOR)

 ABSTRACT

Several years of military misrule and mismanagement had weakened the economic management processes and institutions in Nigeria. There was no transparency and accountability in government (Public Sector) and private sectors and Nigeria became notorious for endemic corruption. The result was the inability of government to deliver corruption. Most private companies both in the oil and non-oil sector have constantly evade taxes and have collide with officials to evade custom duties and payment of taxes. In addition, widespread perpetration of economic and financial crime banking fraud and fraud (419), money laundering, cyber crime, banking fraud and endemic corruption have had severe negative consequences on Nigeria. Consequently, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was established as one of the mechanisms for the prevention, investigation and prosecution of corrupt practices and economic and financial crimes in the public and the private sector. Finally, this research work is aimed at looking into the various contributions of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in promoting financial accountability and transparency. To achieve this aim five research questions were developed. The study adopted the survey research approach using the three study areas. The EFCC Lagos, EFCC Enugu ad PHCN formed the population of the study. A sample size of 55 was choosing using Taro Yamane’s model while simple random techniques were used to select the sample. Data retrieved from 55 completed questionnaires were subsequently  presented in tables while simple percentage were used to analyze and answer the research questions formulated to guide the research work. After the analysis of data, the hypothesis tested reviewed that the contributions of EFCC has effectively promoted financial accountability and transparency in Nigeria. Therefore, the researcher recommends the following: developing an intensified information technology, staff training, capacity building and health care fraud control.

CHAPTER ONE

1.0                                                           INTRODUCTION

1.1       BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

The level of Economic and Financial Crime like advance free fraud, scam mails, illegal oil bunkering and money laundering has had several negative effect on Nigeria, including decreased foreign direct investment in the country among the most corrupt nations of the world.

This menace lead to the establishment of EFCC in 2002 by an act of the National Assembly which was later amended in 2004. It was borne out of the determination of the Federal Government to root out corruption, and sanitize the Nigerian economic environment by enforcing all economic and financial crimes law.

The Act mandate the EFCC to combat financial and economic crimes and the commission is empowered to prevent, investigate, prosecute and penalize economic and financial crimes. Also, the EFCC is charged with and has been investigating cases of abuse of office, diversion of public funds through fraudulent award of contracts, tax fraud, illegal bunkering, terrorism, capital market fraud, cyber crime, banking fraud, etc.

With a mission to curb the menace of corruption that constitutes the clog in the wheel of progress; protect national and foreign investments in the country; issue the spirit of hardworking in the citizenry and discourage the crave of ill-gotten wealth, identify such ill-gotten wealth and confiscate them: build an upright workforce in both public and private sectors of the economy, and contribute to the global war against financial crimes and terrorism financing, the advent of the EFCC has impacted positively on Nigeria’s global acceptance being a turning point in the country’s anti-corruption crusade.

Since its establishment, the EFCC has taken the bill by the horns working tenaciously to fulfill its mandate. Under the current leadership, it vigorously pursues its mandate of investigating cases earlier highlighted; the commission has made concerted efforts in identifying, tracing and freezing, confiscating, or seizing proceeds derived from such illicit activities EFCC, from inception, has also played host to the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), vested with the responsibility of collecting suspicious transactions reports (STRs) from financial and designated non-financial institutions, analyzing and disseminating them to all relevant government agencies and other fills all over the world.

So far, the commission has been able to and still recording successes in several areas of its mandate. Among others, it has recorded several convictions on corruption, money laundering, oil pipeline vandalism and related offences. Assets and money worth over 11 billion have been recovered from corrupt officials and their cohorts. The commission is tenacious with over 65 high profile cases at advanced stages of prosecution in several courts and secured over 600 convictions.

Before then there were other provisions of crimes laws such as:

  • Money laundering amendment Acts 2003, No. 7.
  • The advance fee fraud and other related offences Act 1995 as amended.
  • The failed Banks (recovery of debts) and financial malpractices on Banks Acts 1994 as amended.
  • The banks and other financial institution Act 1991 as amended

 

The commission is also designated to Nigerian Financial Intelligent Unit (NFIU). It is thus, substantial that over problem is not the absence of legislation (law) or the deficiencies in them but the total neglect to enforce them have been the plight of disaster.

 

1.2       STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

            A nation where financial and economic crimes are endemic cannot attain economic stability, growth and development. According to Kristol’s (2007), the problem is always for more important than devising a solution, for he who can define the problem has always exercised a large degree of intellectual sovereignty over the range of possible solutions that must be imagined.

Nigerian being a country where corruption is pandemic has been rated both domestically and internationally as a corrupt nation. Public officials take huge bribes and the cost of public goods and services are inflated, government often pays for non-existent goods and services. Even when such corrupt practices were exposed, it has always been played to the gallery and scarified at the alter of backside bargaining. The corrupt practices that have characterized and painted the nation black include fraud, embezzlement falsification of financial information, obtaining by false pretence, lack of transparency and accountability among others.

These evils have no small measure negated economic stability, growth and development in our country. Experience has shown that both public and private (bank) sectors have continued to suffer inefficiency and ineptness and that growth indices and graph are having a downward slope. This has brought the pertinent question – are there adequate criteria /measures and checks to stem this ugly tide (corruption)?

Poor and insincere policy conception, formulation and implementation on economic and financial crimes in Nigeria have been responsible for the low achievement recorded in curbing and stamping out economic and financial crimes in the country. Hence, the emergence of the “Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to enhance financial accountability and transparency in Nigeria”.

 

1.3       RESEARCH QUESTIONS

  • What are the responsibilities and functions of EFCC?
  • What are the contributions of EFCC in detecting and controlling fraud in Nigeria?
  • How has EFCC contributions benefited Nigeria public and private sectors?
  • What are the contributions of EFCC in enhancing financial accountability and transparency?

What are the achievement and success of the commission?

FACTORS THAT AFFECT FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE OF SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISES IN NIGERIA

 ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to determine factors that affect financial performance of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Nigeria. The research questions for this study were: What was the effect of corporate governance on financial performance in the SMEs in Nigeria, the effect of human resource capacity on financial performance of SMEs and the influence of access to financing on financial performance of SMEs? A descriptive research design was adopted for this study. The target population of the study included the 4,560 SMEs in Nairobi County. Data available from the Ministry of Trade and Ministry of Industrialization, (2013) revealed that there were 2500 SMEs in Manufacturing, 1500 SMEs Trading and 560 SMEs in the service industry. Stratified sampling technique was used to determine a sample size of 100 from the total population. For this study, data was collected using structured questionnaires based on the research questions. Descriptive statistics included frequencies distribution, and percentages and mean, while inferential statistical analysis used included correlations, and regression. The first research question of the study was to investigate the influence of corporate Governance on financial performance of SMEs. The findings of the study indicated that majority (81.6%) of the respondents agreed that corporate governance affects financial performance. Equally, the study findings revealed a positive relationship between corporate governance and financial performance, (r= 0.491) p <0.05. The second research question of the study was to determine the effect of human resource on financial performance of SMEs. The study findings indicated that majority (89.5%) of the respondents agreed that HR department ensures that employees are conversant with new trends in technology adopted in market. The study findings also revealed that there existed a strong positive relationship between human resource and financial performance, r (0.414) p < 0.05, indicating the relationship was statistically significant. The third research question of the study was to determine whether access to financing affects financial performance of SMEs. According to the findings, the majority (81.6%) of the respondents agreed that access to financing was important for growth of SMEs r (0.612); p<0.05. The relationship was therefore statistically significant. In conclusion corporate governance, human resource and access to finance were statistically significant vi in explaining financial performance. This implies that SMEs generally had effective factors that improved their financial performance. Results led to the conclusion that corporate governance is a key determinant of financial performance. Results also led to conclusion that the SMEs had embraced and put into practice the structures of corporate governance and it worked for their good. The study clearly demonstrated the importance and the impact of human resource capacity on financial performance. SMEs ensured that their workers were being trained well for the betterment of the firms. The study came to a conclusion that access to finances was a key determinant of financial performance. Accessing bank loans easily improved the financial status of SMEs that subsequently led to reduction on the cost of finance which included higher interest rates, application fees, loan insurance premium, and legal fees. This in turn made it easy for SMES to grow as accessing finance became easier and less costly. The study recommended that the government of Nigeria be supportive to the SMEs by providing incentives to help them in implementing the corporate governance practices. SMEs were also encouraged to embrace corporate governance to the fullest to achieve better financial performance. SMEs were also recommended to consider financial monitoring to be done by the board and managers and board sub-committees. The board and managers also needed to be enlightened on the importance of corporate governance. The study recommended that SMEs should encourage employees training, compensation, performance appraisal and employee participation which were significant components to SMEs performance.

THE EFFECT OF FINANCIAL PLANNING ON THE FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE OF AUTOMOBILE FIRMS IN NIGERIA

ABSTRACT

Financial planning is an integral part of financial management which deals with the management of a firm’s funds with a view to maximizing profit and the wealth of shareholders. The purpose of financial planning is to determine where the firm has been, where it is now, and where it is going. It also determines deviations from the most likely outcome. Finance is concerned with the study of the problems involved in acquisition and use of funds by a business enterprise. Financial planning involves analyzing financial flows of a firm as a whole, forecasting the consequences of various investment, financing and dividend decisions and weighting the effects of various alternatives. Financial planning is the core of financial management. It helps management to avoid waste by furnishing policies and procedures which make possible a closer coordination between the various functions of the business. The design of the study is descriptive research method. In addition both qualitative and quantitative methods were applied in data collection and analysis. The descriptive design is found to be suitable because it addresses major objectives and research questions proposed in the study adequately. The study gathered primary data. Primary data was obtained through questionnaires to randomly selected employees from the selected companies. The use of questionnaires was recommended since it guaranteed confidentiality to the respondents thus they acted without any fear or embarrassment. The aim of this study was to find out whether financial planning has an impact on the financial performance of the firms in the automobile industry in NIGERIA. The results of the study indicated that the financial planning measures such as earnings before interest and tax and the capital employed which comprises of fixed assets and working capital had an impact on the financial performance of the firm measured by return on capital employed(ROCE). This implies that a percentage change in the financial planning measures will have an effect on the financial performance of a firm. This study showed that there is strong relationship between financial planning and financial performance of a firm. The success of any business depends on the manner the financial plans are formulated. Therefore, it can be concluded that financial planning has an effect on the financial performance of automobile companies in NIGERIA.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION
1.1 Background of the Study
Financial planning involves analyzing financial flows of a firm as a whole, forecasting the consequences of various investments, financing and dividend decisions and weighting the effects of various alternatives. Financial planning is the core of financial management. The complex nature of business demands that management should place greater emphasis upon financial planning to secure and employ capital resources in the amount and proportion necessary to increase the efficiency of remaining factors of production. Financial planning is needed both in dynamic and perfect economic conditions. It helps management to avoid waste by furnishing policies and procedures which make possible a closer co-ordination between the various functions of business (Oye, 2006).
Financial planning must however be complemented by control in order to achieve the basic aim of planning. The actual results must be measured concurrently against projections. Control is the financial management function which must be exercised by executive personnel of the business enterprise to achieve the goals established by the planning function. It deals with testing the degree of management performance in the attainment of the set objectives. It is also a check to deviations from the planning function, and once the causes for the difference between the actual and expected performance have been identified, a corrective action should be initiated. Financial planning can be defined as the process which assures that financial resources are obtained economically and used efficiently and effectively in the accomplishment of desired goals. It covers the entire process of monitoring actions emanating from the decisions. Seen as an integral part of financial management, it also forms part of budgeting, accounting, reporting and review. The budget is then put in practice and results expected. Budgetary control system forms a good basis of controlling plans. Definitely, actual activities are monitored and their results measured and then compared with plan. Then significant deviations from plan are identified and reported upon. The last step is to investigate the deviations accordingly and take corrective measures (Samuel, 1980).
2
The success of any business depends on the manner the production and distribution functions are coordinated. An important function of financial planning is the coordination of the various decisions taken within a company so that they are mutually consistent, having regard for financial aims and constraints. The exercise of this function is perhaps most clearly seen in formulating financial plans which involves merging of estimates of each department into a budget for the whole firm. In this process the financial manager holds a strategic position. Without coordination, individuals and departments would lose sight of their roles within the organization. They would begin to pursue their own specialized interests, often at the expense of the large organizational goals. Also, the point to be emphasized is that the activities of all departments must mesh. It is through budgeting that the activities of various departments are coordinated and unnecessary wastage of resources and efforts is stopped. Budgeting requires each manager to establish a proper rapport between the activities of his department and that of other departments. Any imbalance in the relationship between the departmental activities should be identified and corrective measure taken (Brockinton, 1987).
Many organizations adopt various strategies among which is the financial planning and control. Financial planning and control is an integral part of financial management which deals with the management of a firm’s funds with a view to maximizing profit and the wealth of shareholders. The purpose of financial planning is to determine where the firm has been, where it is now, and where it is going. It also determines deviations from the most likely outcome. Financial planning is concerned with the study of the problems involved in the acquisition and use of funds by a business as well as the function of profit planning for the business organization. Planning can be defined as a managerial tool through which objectives and goals are determined and the future course of action to attain them, while control is a management action to ensure conformity with a plan or budget. Many will produce detailed plans for one year and more general financial plans for three to five years (Koontz, 1988).

THE EFFECT OF CREDIT RISK MANAGEMENT IN COMMERCIAL BANKS (A CASE STUDY OF UNITED BANK OF AFRICA PLC, DUGBE)

ABSTRACT

This study examined “the effect of credit risk management in commercial banks”. In achieving the objectives identified in this study, the audited corporate annual financial statement of United Bank for African Plc covering the period 2006 – 2015 were analyzed. The study employed Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) multiple regressions with the aid of Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 20, to determine the effect of the independent variables on the dependent variable. The statistical test of Parameter estimates will be conducted using their Adjusted R2, F-cal, Standard Error, T-cal and at 5% level of significance. The result discovered from the linear regressions that the R calculated is (0.888), R2 regressed Loan & advance is 0.942 which indicates 0.5% of the variation in the dependent variable Loan & Advance and bank Profitability which can be explained by the predator or the independent variables, since the F-value is greater than the Sig. which is explained by (7.906>0.0112). This result indicates a significant relationship between the dependent variable and the independent variables. Therefore, the null hypothesis H0 is rejected and alternative hypothesis H1 is accepted. The findings revealed that credit risk management has effect on profit in Nigeria Bank. The study therefore recommends that for the effectiveness of the department responsible for credit management, it must be constituted independently of the credit marketing group, also the organization should put in place effective and practicable internal control systems of preventing the manipulation of Bank’s credit policies. To this end, it is recommends that both the inspection and risk management department should report directly to the highest authority within the bank.


 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1       Background to the Study

Banks are exposed to different types of risks, which affect the performance and activity of these banks, since the primary goal of the banking management is to maximize the shareholders’ wealth, so in achieving this goal banks’ managers should assess the cash flows and the assumed risks as a result of directing its financial resources in different areas of utilization. Credit risk is one of the most significant risks that banks face, considering that granting credit is one of the main sources of income in commercial banks. Therefore, the management of the risk related to that credit affects the profitability of the banks (Li and Zou, 2014).

The health of financial system has important role in the country (Das and Ghosh, 2007) as its failure can disrupt economic development of the country. Company’s financial performance is ability to generate new resources, from day – to – day operation over a given period of time and being gauged by net income and cash from operation. The bank performance measure can be divided into traditional measures and market based measures (Aktan and Bulut, 2008). New banking risk management techniques emerged in early 1990’s. To be able to manage the different types of risk one has to define them before on can manage the. Credit risk, interest rate risk, liquidity risk, market risk, foreign exchange risk and solvency risk are the most applicable risk to the banks. According to Appa (1996), Risk management is the human activity which integrates recognition of risk, risk assessment, developing strategies to manage it, and mitigation of risk using managerial resources, but credit risk is the risk of loss due to debtor’s non–payment of a loan or other line of credit (either the principal or interest or both) (Campbell, 2007). A commercial bank is a institution that provides financial services, including issuing money in various forms, receiving deposits of money, lending money and processing transactions and the creating of credit (Campbell, 2007). The important of credit risk management to banks cannot be overemphasis and it also form an integral part of the loan process. Credit risk management maximizes bank risk, adjusted risk rate of return by maintaining credit risk exposure with view to shielding the bank from the adverse effects of credit risk. The importance of credit risk management in banks is due to its ability in affecting the banks’ financial performance, existence and growth.


 

1.2       Statement of the Problem

Risk is a major factor to be considered in every financial intermediation. It is a great threat to financial business and its effective management should be considered in attaining performance. Most credit decisions in financial institutions expose its management to some level of risk, hence the need for effective risk management policy. It involves identification, quantifying and managing the uncertainties that firm faces as outcomes of financial intermediation activities are uncertain which in turn result to risk. Risks come to play as a result of strategic failure, operational failure, financial failure, market failure and disruptions, environmental disaster and regulatory violations. Credit risk is a big threat for banks as the value of any organization is measured by its credit worthiness. Therefore, credit risk management is of critical importance for the good performance of banks. It is expected that good credit risk management would result to greater performance through higher profit, good productivity, increased capital investment and also create opportunities that would improve the standard of living. The banks’ motivation for risk management comes from the tendency of risks leading to bank underperformance (Eduardus et al., 2007). Based on the fact that Islamic banking has numerous idiosyncratic characteristics, the temperament and extent of risk facing such organizations may be considerably different due to the concept of profit-sharing approach in Islamic banks. Furthermore, Islamic banks are constrained in using some of the risk mitigation instruments that their conventional counterparts use as these are not allowed under Islamic commercial law. There have been a fairly small number of academic studies available on Islamic banks about risk management. However, this study creates uniqueness with the extent of influence involved towards credit performance.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1     Background of the Study

Training and development of a personnel has grown from single nature to a dynamic and challenging function. Thus, it is required to a dynamic personnel match up to the different tasks and responsibility from time to time. Training a continuous process and  a means by which we adjust to life. “An employee employed usually possess skill than required, thus, need to train and retrain to keep abreast of changes n our dynamic socio-economic environment.

Training and development is a continuous process, which must be able to forecast fairly, accurately the future need of an organization in term of personnel. The continuous process undergone by managers allows them to meet up the leadership has expected of them. Such process includes conference attendance of seminars, in house training programme and training programme offered by consultants in similar sector of the economic. Thus training is a catalyst that service as a mean of bringing about in the personnel behaviors.

In all industry and manpower training development was neglected. The pressure of increasing refinery facilities as a result if the growth of the economy.

The experiences of the limited available personnel in the industry by new companies were the obvious persons.

Personnel management has become important recently more than any other discipline in the world. This is because of the increasing awareness that management is the only vehicle by which one organization can achieve her goals efficiently and effectively.

In spite of the increasing settings, man continuous to play all important role since man makes machines and not officer way round. Man manages money, machines materials, methods and fellow men. Thus it is the most important asset to achieve a good organization.

Maslement and Huges (1971) observe that when a machine function importantly, it is either repaired or replaced. But when a person need up grading or retraining the personnel department usually provide it.

Normally it is expensive to training hired workers in both time and money, the personnel department must select the right employees  put them in the appropriate positions and keep them as satisfied company team members.

This is important because employees have their own goals, which are usually different from those of the organization. Such goals include self actualization, personnel satisfaction, increasing wages and salaries while that of an organization is principally maximum profit and other benefits.
