Banking in Nigeria has improved over the years. Competition amongst the individual banks has made for more improvements as the banks try to offer their customers the best service.
The population in the rural area still makes the Banking services Poor and they still get complaints from their customers using their financial services. For instance, when you get to the rural areas, there is a lack of access to services; even those living in the urban areas can’t access some financial services such as loans because of certain rules guiding the banking sector.
