Banking, Finance houses, lending


The paper is an excerpts from the address of Professor Oladapo, acting Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos at the opening of the 13th Annual Banking Seminar held at the university of Lagos in October 1978. He discusses some of the challenges associated with lending from financial houses in Nigeria in the 1970s and hopes that Banking in the 80s would be a socially responsible financial system which will stimulate growth and creativity within the economy, and serve as an agent for mobilising the resources of society.
