The study, therefore, compared the economic activities of the commercial banks in the pre-SAP era (1980-1985) with those of the SAP period (1986-1989). This is meant to determine whether the policies in the SAP era have actually resulted in solving the national economic problems that those in the pre-SAP era could not solve. The method used for the analysis was to take four of the major banks: First Bank, UBA, Union Bank and IBWA (AFRIBANK). Taking such performance indicators as their total deposits, loans and advances, capital base, profits level, staff strength,
