LITERATURE REVIEW

2.1 DEFINITION OF A BANK, BANKERS AND A CUSTOMER.

WHAT IS A BANK?

There aren’t any universally acceptable definitions of the word banks. However we shall try as much as possible to see a few of the definitions as proffered by scholars. 

According to section 2[1] of the bill of exchange act of 1990, defined a bank as a body of person whether incorporated or not, who carry’s on the business of banking.

While according to Dr. Herbert Hart try to define a bank as “a person or a company carrying on business or receiving monies and collecting drafts for customer receiving subject to the obligations of honoring cheque drawn upon them from time to time by customers to the extent of the amount available on their current account.

Decree No. 12 of 1990 section 16 [1] of the character institute of banker defined a banker as a person who is in consideration, of remuneration received or to be received engage himself in the practices of banking procedure”

A bank can in brief be defined as a person who engaged in the practices of banking as a profession in consideration of remuneration to be received

WHO IS A CUSTOMER?

Before somebody can be regard as a customer of a bank there must be some sort of account opened current account, by the customer with the bank and there must have been at least a transaction on the account.

As this definitions of customer was established in the case of GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY 10 V LONDON ON AND COUNTRY BANKING 10 LTD [1989] its was held that despite the long course of dealing the man who had been cashing a cheque in the bank for the past 20 year was not a customer because he had no account with the bank.

Having now been able to identify what exactly these three term are we lean explain what the title of the project work is about.
