This chapter gives to the paper. As we can get the insight from the paper preview/abstract, the paper treaties on the need for electrification or computerization of the Emene community bank (A community bank in Emene Enugu State).
Under this veil the paper will present:
1. The background information or the historical background of the bank in question.
2. The general survey of the environment.
3. Coming to the area of the chapter preview, we discuss the nature of community bank in its entirely.
THE ADVENT OF COMMUNITY BANK IN NIGERIA
Without moving into details or digressing form the targets, community banking system is a novelty of the latest decade of the 20th century. The idea was affected with the establishment of the community bank implementation committee (CBIC) in 1990 under the authority of General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida.

The advantages of the electronic data processing coupled with the universal banking and globalisation are myriads in nature and cannot be elicited hastily.

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEMS
There are clouds of doubts about the importance of electronic data processing. Many people are in support of this innovation in data processing while others trample on it.
In this bid, Harold Hill in his book ”Computer Technology (1995-115), averred that the electronic data processing is a new discussion in data processing which is most labour-saving.
The work lends to test whether the other method of data processing meet the mileage of EDP. Also it tries to check the chromic need of SDP in the grass root banking service (ie. The community bank).
In putting all we have said in a nutshell electronic data processing (EDP) system has some needs and mileages over other method of data processing of which this paper will x-ray the true fact concerning the clouds and doubts therein.
That is to say that the research study is concerned with evaluating the effect of the use of electronic data processing system in community banks.
Critically, the research will try to examine the advantages and disadvantages of electronic data processing system in community banks.
1. Are the community bank in Nigeria ripe enough to employ the services of electronic data processing system in community banks?
2. Another problem of the stud
