Filed in BANKING AND FINANCE by on August 1, 2018

ABSTRACT

 This empirical study, seeks to determine the impact of corporate governance mechanisms on the performance of banks in Nigeria. An intensive review of literature was conducted to identify the various aspects of corporate governance and the roles they play in determining corporate performance. In this study, board size and board independence represented corporate governance while return on equity and return on assets proxied firm performance. The Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) technique was applied on data gathered from 5 Commercial Banks firms over the period 2008 to 2012. The findings of this study indicate that elements of corporate governance such as board size and board independence have negative effects on the performance of firms, as measured by the return on assets and return on equity.
