Abstract

The study examined the effect of Corporate Governance on the Performance of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria. Ex-Post Facto research design was adopted and secondary data were obtained from Annual reports of selected Deposit Money Banks for a period of ten years (2009-2018). The objectives are to investigate the extent to which Board size affects Return on Equity and also to determine the effect of Board composition on the Net profit of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria. Hypotheses were formulated and analyzed using Ordinary Least Square (OLS) regression method. The result reveals that the Board size has significant and positive effect on the Return on Equity (ROE) of Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria. It equally shows that Board composition has positive significant effect on their net profit as well. The study recommends that effort should be made to increase shareholders’ returns on investment by making sure that corporate organizations appoint Board members based on professional expertise and integrity.
