Central Bank of Nigeria building

There are three major types of banks in Nigeria:

● Banks owned by the government

● Commercial Banks

● Private or Microfinance Banks

Commercial banks in Nigeria are financial institutions that offer all forms of financial services. These services include accepting deposits, basic investment products, and giving out of loans to both individuals and corporate entities. The Central Bank of Nigeria has total control of these banks and gives conditions and directives from time to time to regulate their activities. Following some new directives from the CBN in 2006, some of the commercial banks that couldn’t meet the requirements had to either stop operations or merge with other banks. Below is the list of the commercial banks in Nigeria as of 2017, with their head office addresses and the managing directors.
