1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Management has been defined as the process of combining and utilizing organization’s resource of managerial to accomplish organization objectives. It is also a process of entrusting responsibility for effective planning and regulation of operation in an enterprise in fulfillment of a given purpose or task.
What then do we actually means by interference? Interference according to Webster’s dictionary is to take an active but unwelcome part in some else activity.
In this study it has been revealed that interference on financial institution by government as a whole is a noble in the right direction. This Niger financial system is very vibrant and highly competitive they have four basic product lines in the banking industry such as deposit base product, lending base product, fee base product, and technology base product. This was instituted by the observation during the research that financial institution benefited immensely by the government on the financial institution.
It is well known fact that number of service of financial institutions offers have increased by taking a fundamental nature of their business and it remains unchanged. This led to the conclusion that management in financial institution is surrounded with risk. Management which involves mismatches of assets and liabilities and it is cost borrowing and lending on the other side. To nurture the economy is to loan the part of development that has been the role of financial institution, mostly banks which has been constrained by number of facts in to the past price.
Now the industrial sector has been characterized by massive government involvement because of weak technolocal base, lack of linkages in infrastructure and policy investment highly production cost and goods that were uncompetitive internationally. Over the entire micro economic environment was highly unstable, witnessing capital fight, high interest or inflation rates negative real growth rates and fiscal excesses. With an external debt burden of about 27.46 at the end of 1997, the repayment burden put constraint on growth. Since 1995, however the federal government has been able to store some measure of fiscal discipline through low budget deficits which achieved stable interest and exchange rates regimes while pushing down inflation to a simple digit of 8.5 percent in 1998.
Aggressive reform and sanitation of the financial institution source were pursued. On the other hand, little or no attention was paid to the vital area of privatization of government utilities liberalization of the economic and improvement of infrastructure. The above review of the economy has been undertaken and other financial institutions were supposed to operate and provide financial to the industrial sector. Therefore, form the above review the researcher wants to use this study to explore those factors emanated from government interference in the management of financial institutions that inhibited them from effective discharging, their responsibility to the economy generally using the rules and regulation of Kingstone bank PLC to determine the extent it has contributed both positively and negative part of such interference in the institution.
The Nigeria institution is very vibrant and highly competitive. It consist of 105 viable commercial and merchant banks which are privately owned with a total of 2, 400 branches and development bank such as NBC, NIDB, PBN AND FMSN owned by the government. There are about 200 registered non bank finance houses of various sizes, part of the structural adjustment programme (SAP) introduced in 1986. This was the expansion and diffusion of the banking sector which has grown to 67 commercial and 55 merchant banks then 45 primary mortgage institution 228 branched of the people bank, 618 finance companies, 48 fully licensed by the CBN, 401 community banks and specialized bank by this null 1990’s there was endemic distress in financial system which led to collapse of many of the institutions in the industry.
Many commercial and merchant banks were liquidated with 26 banks (13 each for commercial and merchant) liquidated as recently as January 16, 1989. In this case, Kingstone bank of Nigeria PLC Enugu revealed that government interference in the management of positive type. Even though that there are some risks in embodying such rules and regulations line is their banking system such as deposit based on product lending base, product fee base, products and technology base.
Therefore the interference has help to accept the risk job of greater mobilization of saving from the surplus units and channel them to the deficit productive units of the economy and to ensure that no unable project is frustrated due to lack of funds and greater facilitation of synergies and sartorial linkages within the economy.
There are still problems resulting in such interference of which Kingstone bank are complaining of.
The effect of government interference in the management of Kingstone bank plc also covers limits of permissible business risk concentration capital and liquidity adequacy and statutory returns. The monetary aspect of regulatory includes control of over loading general structure of leading rates reserve requirement and foreign exchange. There are also regulations covering advertising staff loan. Loan directors and inside dealing supervision is employed to ensure effective management and control. The criticism led to gradual deregulation in 1984 and was subsequently accelerated with the adoption of (SAP) programme which gives room for the operation of free market forces given financial instructions and more direction to their operation and stimulation competitions in the financial system as a whole.
Consequently in 1988 the Nigeria deposit insurance corporation was established with regulatory power to protect depositors against bank failure and thereby strength the financial and impacted greatly on financial institution environment.

In spite of the fact that the researcher explained the management of Kingstone bank that her study was purely academic test and the management was reluctant to information.

Kendra Cherry the term theory is used with surprising frequency in everyday language it is often used in to mean a guesses, hunch or supposition. You may even hear people dismiss certain information because it is “only a Theory” it is important to note as you study psychology and other scientific topics, that a theory in science in not the same as the colloquial use of the term. A theory is a based upon a hypothesis and baked by evidence. A theory presents a concept or idea that is testable. In science, a theory is not merely a guess. A theory is a fact based framework for describing a phenomenon. In psychology, theories are used to provide a model for understanding human thoughts, emotions and behaviors.
A psychological theory has two key components:
1. it must describe a behavior
2. it make predictions about future behaviors
Throughout psychology’s history, a number of different theories have been proposed to explain and predict various aspects of human behavior. Some of these theories have stood the test of time and remain well accepted today. Others have not held up under close scientific scrutiny, and may have been rejected altogether or only partially accepted by researchers today.
2.2 THEORETICAL FRAME WORK LITERATURE REVIEW
The Nigeria financial sector has attracted the attention of most sectors, in recent time. This according to observed data attempt has been made in this study by means of statistical analysis to extract the magnitude of the changes which have accrued Nigeria financial system since the introduction of structure reforms in their mid 1980’s. however the rapid globalization of financial market, concern has heightened over declines in the level of savings investment and rte of failed banks Nigeria has exerted pressures on natural, monetary authorities to re-examined and revaluated their domestic policies with view of finding solution the structural adjustment programme was introduced in 1986 to liberalize the financial and payment systems in this case interest rtes were de-regulated. The process of licensing new banks simplification (NDC) was established to reinforce confidence in the banking industry. Since 1986 Government through central bank of Nigeria has adopted numerous monetary and structural policies armed at depending on the financial system and reducing the level of financial repression in the banking industry.
