Loans and overdrafts provision of international money market banking services, export credits and financial advisory services, farmer loan scheme, time deposit current account, statement savings scheme, house saving an loan scheme, first cash, UBA card, current account management services, money gram or international money transfer system, scholarship schemes.
All this products were aimed at generating profit to the banks concerned but due to change in market demand for these products and infavourable economic environment, there is a decline in sales of these product and subsequent decline in their profit performance (ANIBUEZE 1998) (BANKING PRATICE)

Therefore, the problem here is how profitable would these products be so as to make any impact on the profit performance to these banks.

1.2 RATIONAL FOR STUDY
The banking sector of Nigeria economy is facing many changes brought about by the contain policy changes brought about by the constant policy changes by government, operation income depletion and most recently the SAP of 1986 which aims at deregulating the financial system (OKAFOR 1988) (BANKING SYSTEM IN NIG.)
These changes have given rise to a number of difficulties that the banks are graphing with, most especially the commercial bank. These difficulties include low profit performance, which have affected their operation activities adversely, leaving to the distress problem facing most of these banks today for which about 26 of them have unfortunately been liquidated as announced in the last annual budget of the Federal Military Government.
This low profit performance, necessitated the introduction of new products which is primarily aimed at improving the profit positions of these banks (Nwankwo 1992).
Therefore, the rational for this study is to determine the possibility of these products introduces salvaging the banks from their low profit situation as a means of solving the banking distress problem and eventual liquidation which have a negative impact in the economy in general.
