1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
“Habit” is a settled disposition or tendency to act in a certain way, especially one acquired by frequent repetition of the same act until it becomes almost or quite involuntary, a settled practice or established and regular standard of behaviour.
Banking habit as used in this study, refers to the settled practice or acquired tendency of patronizing the Banks by frequently utilizing the various services offered by banks and a widespread banking awareness.
Controlling of customer’s account as known today evolved from a rather humble beginning when the goldsmith discovered that only a small proportion of the money kept with him for safe custody was infact required by the depositors at any one time.
He therefore developed a system of controlling the amount left with him and the amount led to other people. The banking system which later inherited this found out that controlling is a major aspect of the management of customer’s account.
In view of the above, the Commercial Bank’s Customers account and later seeking ways to see if the standards are being operated as prescribed is known as controlling aspects for customers account.
Indeed, commercial banks have been and are likely to remain the document financial intermediaries in Nigeria for they at present account for over 51% of the resources of the financial system tot he economy. They therefore occupy a strategic position in the economy and are more than most other units or sub-sectors able in all respects to influence the course of development.
