ABSTRACT
The objective of corporate governance in the strategic management of the banking industry in Nigeria is to ensure hearth financial system and economic development .This study therefore discusses the corporate governance and financial reporting in the banking institutions in Nigeria, This study was embarked upon to explore the intricacies of corporate governance and financial reporting issues in the banking industry. A total of 133copies of questionnaires were distributed. The respondents consist of regulatory institution, bank employees and bank customers. The data collected were presented in frequency, tables and analysed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences. The study revealed that the relatively stronger Nigerian banking industry is faced with diverse ethical issues despite the reformative consolidation exercise and although codes and standards guiding sound governance and ethical reporting have gone a long way in salvaging the banking profession, it may not be adequate to face the new ethical challenges in post-consolidation, especially in the absence of an adequately equipped system of supervision. The recommendations highlighted by this study may be summarized into a singular action plan, which entails the unification of ethical regulations and introduction of legal enforcement to ensure compliance in governance and its consequent reporting.
