I encountered a lot of problems while carrying out this researcher work. It wasn’t easy for me getting information. When I want to First Bank Plc Enugu Branch, I was told that the authority was not vested on them to give out some of these vital information for some security reasons. The project work is a tasking lob which demands enough time and commitment, but for the fact that are combing, it with other course it is not really easy based on the duration of activities and events involved in the work. Besides, much money is always committed to this to make a quality presentation as a result of in-depth study. Due to lack of fund it is met all resources and materials that are used I had to make do with other activities while the process was going on.
It is assumed that at the completion of this work a new system will be put in peace and that they will move from manual to operations to a computerized system, which will be able to handle the job effectively and efficiently. More so, those that are going to be involved in the operations of the new system will be educated adequately to handle the new change. It is also assumed that all the information given to me by first bank plc Enugu branch are all correct and valid.
