1.1 PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION
Motivation of customers is a very important tool to be used by financial institution like banks.
Therefore I want to investigate the benefits of banks if they (customers) are being motivated by banks.
Banks can motivate customers by giving sales promotion, increasing the interest rate of depositors especially those that operate savings account, giving loans to prime customers when such cases instruments or article for example, “treasury bills, certificates for deposit”. These financial instruments should be issued at a lower rate to customers, also reducing the interest rate of loans can motivate customers to petronise such institution e.g. bank.
1.2 THE RATIONALE OF STUDY
The rationale of this study can be said to be very essential, assuming we are to understand and influence motivation. The important reason of this study could be said to be: guiding against past experience. Not maintaining good relationship with customers an render such a financial institution at liquidation, therefore the past experience of not patronizing banks could be brough to its abrupt end if this study will be absolutely followed.
This study provide an avenue for banks to amend past experience.
The reason could also be said also to be profit reformation. In most cases, banks misuse the opportunity of profit maximization, in order to avert this, motivational process is a very good example to regain such profit.
For customers to know their rights and obligation, it is the right of customers to be motivated and their duty of patronage is certain, there for the reason of motivation process is important.

The study will be of immense benefit to the institution under study e.g Banks. The finding and recommendations of this study shade to be of great importance to the management of a particular financial institution in dealing with problems relating to motivational process. However, the study shall be of great help to the financial institution to have a good working relationship with their customers.
The study shall also be useful to scholars and researchers who are interested in carrying out research work based on the area of motivation in an institution.
The study will also help some financial institution to defeat the cause of backwardness of some of our Banks which also dwindle the rate of income and profit of the institution and the way some of these problems could be solved.
