The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of corporate governance on banks stakeholders and efficient bank management in Nigeria. The corporate governance variable employed in this study was that of board of directors. The two proxies selected for this research as independent variables are Board size and Board composition. Whilst the proxy for the dependent variable employed was earnings per share since regression only depicts the relationship that exist between two variables (x and y). This study made use of secondary data obtained from the financial reports of five (5) banks for a period of eight (8) years (2005-2012). Secondary data was analysed using Regression while chi-square was used to analyse the primary data from bank operators through administered questionnaire. The results generated were found to be similar to that of other previous scholars who have carried out a research on the issue of corporate governance and banks profitability. This study makes a significant contribution to research by exposing the importance of corporate governance in the Nigerian Banking System. The study supported the hypothesis that corporate governance positively affects not only stakeholders but also efficient bank management.
