(TQM) oriented to a very large extent. It is apparent form the findings that
the attached great importance to their performance and responding appropriately

BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
Nigeria’s political and business
terrain between 1983 and 1989 was one of biting economics hardship, great
uncertainties and instability.
Banks and other financial
institutions were doing well especially through exploitation of fore allocation
formula up to 1990 to survive or grow through huge profits which critics termed
“paper profit” as time went by when the ruler changed in 1990, following CBN
prudential guideline and the federal governments banks and other financial
institutional degree (BOFID) in addition to a worsening economic downtown
increasing in serviced debt stock with growing sophistication in customers
clientele and motivating staff competition. These situations and some other
one’s precipitated the liquidation of as much as 31 banks by 1990.
This situation necessitated the
need for organization to adopt practice of continuous improvement in the face
of increasing competition and challenging operating environment. The potential
contribution of enhanced product and service quality to competitive advantage
and financial, performance notably through impact on cost and ability to charge
premium prices has motivated several organization to be involved in TQM (Total
Quality Management) activity and general attitude of business improvement.
There had been inference of
linkage between TQM business result and organization performances.
A positive attempt by organization
to improve structural, infrastructure, attitudinal behavioural and
methodological ways of developing to the end customers with emphasize on
constituency, improvements in quality competitive enhancements all with the aim
of satisfying or delighting the end user, which his been paramount in the
current clamor for the implementation of TQM.
According to Aboto, E.M (1998)
one management tool that has played a leading role in the restricting exercises
in the banking industry is total quality management (TQM).
TQM as phenomenon started spreading like
wildfire across the globe in the early 1980s and had been spurred on by the
fierce competition ranging between companies of Japan, North
America and Europe. Japanese
whose land was devastated by atomic bomb in the second world war, rose from the
rubbles of rubbers of deactivation in Nagashaki and Hirosina to become over the
world industrial the world market like collosions. It was found out that Japan’s
miraculous economics glory was a resultant effect to TQM. Japan produced goods
and able to sell at a price which was lower than what it was costing the Americans
and Europeans to produce them just-in-time (JIT) system enables then to produce
and sell their product without incurring any cost of warehousing, “Ringi
system” and like-long employment tatic were some of the component of the total
quality management technical to economic success (Fapounda, 1997).
