Impact of corruption on bank profitability in Nigeria
A chapter in Proceedings of FIKUSZ '09, 2009, pp 7-16 from Óbuda University, Keleti Faculty of Business and Management
This study sought to econometrically analyze the impact of corruption on bank profitability in Nigeria. Using a panel data set comprising 358 observations of 48 unique banks over the 1996 - 2006 time period, backward stepwise regression results reveal that corruption has a significant positive impact on bank profitability in Nigeria. The results lend credence to accusations that banks in Nigeria are thriving from corruption in the country.
