Last year, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), which regulates the banking sector in the country, pushed banks to offer loans to their customers, giving them the percent of their deposits that should be given out to support the economy.

In July 2019, the CBN gave banks in the country till September 30, 2019, to increase their loan to deposit ratio 60 percent and after the expiration, 12 lenders were fined nearly N500 billion.

According to the CBN, the 12 affected lenders had their fines deducted from their Cash Reserve Requirement (CRR) domiciled with it (CBN). The CRR is a portion of the banks’ deposits kept with the CBN for regulatory reasons.

After the first deadline elapsed, the apex bank raised the LDR to 65 percent and gave all the banks till December 31, 2019, to meet up or be fined.

“All DMBs are required to attain a minimum LDR of 65 percent by December 31, 2019, and this ratio shall be subject to quarterly review to encourage SMEs, retail, mortgage and consumer lending, these sectors shall be assigned a weight of 150 percent computing the LDR for this purpose,” a circular from the CBN had said.

This year, the central bank has retained the LDR at 65 percent after the expiration of the second deadline last month, saying it has noticed a remarkable increase in the size of gross credit by deposit money banks (DMBs) to customers.
