CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Available records indicate that first lease transaction in Nigeria was said to have taken place in the early ‘60s through off-shore united kingdom leasing companies. With the outbreak of the civil war in 1967, these leasing transactions become impossible due to  stringent exchange control measures introduced by the military government of the day. Between 1974 and 1978, leasing experienced its first boom with five merchants banks booking their first sets of leases in Nigeria.  This boom was how ever short-lived as the economic crisis of 1980-82 almost crippled leasing activities. With the introduction of import licenses, most companies would rather utilize the almighty import license for the outright importation of essential and non-essential raw material and spare parts. Furthermore, where the import licenses, which were very difficult to come by were granted, they were not used to purchase in most case.

 

Equipment that will be suitable for use in our own contextual setting or in the extreme will be obsolete and this is due to the “Nigeria Factor” However, with  the introduction of the structural /adjustment programme (SAP), in July 1886, equipment leasing has gained increased significance to the extent that some financial analyst  describe what was going on as a boom. Tight monetary and credit policies which put a squeeze on credit expansion was one of the factors that has been responsible for the observed phenomenal growth since 1986 which has made outright purchases or requisition of equipment a rather expensive affair beyond the reach of most business. The current development in leasing  as a source of financial which are phenomenal may have been encouraged by structural Adjustment programme (SAP). It is important to say that leasing has been in existence much earlier than structural Adjustment programme (SAP) as shall be seen in subsequent chapters.

 

1.2   STATEMENT OF PROBLEMS

leasing can neither be said to be a new product in the present day Nigeria nor can it be said to be in it infancy as some people say. Be it as it may the issue of equipment lease financing has been a relatively unknown and unexpected method of financing capital projects in the Nigeria economy. The problem that this research work intends to address will amongst other things include why the chance to leasing and what circumstance led to this? What are this issue addressed in leasing? Is it the best financing alternative in the present Nigeria situation? What are the types of leases that exist with particular reference to Fidelity Merchant bank, Onitsha, the problems encountered in structuring of leases?. What are the legal process controlling  the practices of equipment leasing/ are any problems being encountered by either the lessor or leaser or both? These are the major question and problems which this research work shall address itself primarily to.
