Olasunkanmi Olusogo Olusogo


This research looks into the impacts of various actors and there pressures on the formulation of the banking policy in Nigeria. The analysis adopts a secondary method of data collection to diagnose the contribution of the external actors on the banking policy in Nigeria. It investigates the objectives of the policy and thereby concludes that the banking policy in Nigeria is never done in isolation of the international milieu. Hence, the external actors are very instrumental to the formulation of banking policy in Nigeria.
