The Complete List Of Banks In Nigeria 2020

There are currently 29 banks recognized by the Central Bank of Nigeria and granted a license by the government. This article contains a well-detailed list of banks in Nigeria, contact information, and their official website.

The Central Bank of Nigeria with its head office in Abuja is the central bank and apex monetary authority of Nigeria. It acts as a banker of last resort and financial adviser to the federal government.

CBN controls, monitors, regulates the financial activities of all commercial banks and other financial institutions in Nigeria.

Without the CBN operational standards, banks would be double the figure given in this list.

Some years back, before bank consolidation in Nigeria, the number of banks was on the high side.

Presently only banks with solid financial backbone, which also satisfy CBN operational standards are allowed to operate in Nigeria. They are grouped into commercial, non-interest and Merchant banks.
