It is a well know fact that number of service financial institutions offers have increased but risk taking which is fundamental nature of their business remains unchanged. This has led to conclusion that management is financial institution is surrounded with risk management which involves mismatches of assets and liabilities on other side and it is cost borrowing and lending on the other side. The economy and to nurture it a lone the path of development been. The role of financial institution mostly banks has been constrained by number of facts in too past. Price to now the industrial sectors has been characterized by massive government involvement because of weak technological base lack of linkages in infrastructure and policy investment highly production cost and goods that were uncompetitive internationally. Over all the micro economic environment was highly unstable witnessing capital fight high interest or inflation rates negative real growth rates and fiscal excesses. With an external debt burden of about 27.4 6 as the end of 1997,t he repayment burden put constraint on growth.
Since 1995 however the federal government been able to store some measure of fiscal discipline through low budget deficits which achieved stable interest and exchange rates regimes while pushing down inflation to a simple digit of 8.5 percent in 1998
Aggressive reform and sanitation of the financial institution source were pursued. On the other hand little or no attention was paid to the vital area of privatization of government utilities liberalization of the economy and improvement of infrastructure.
The above review of the economy has been undertaken and other financial institution were supposed to operate and provide financial to the industrial sector
Therefore, form the above review the researcher wants to use this study to explore those factors emanated from government interference in the management of financial institutions that inhibited them from effectively discharging their responsibility to the economy generally using the rules and regulation of union bank PLC to determine the extent it has contributed both positively and the negative part of such interference in the institution

A close at the operation policy union bank Nigeria PLCEnugurevealed that government interference in management of positive type. Even though that there are some risk in embodying such rules regulations line is their banking system such depots base product lending lines is their banking system such as deposit based on products lending bases product fee base products and technology base products.
Therefore the interference has help the to accept the risk job of greater mobilization of saving from the surplus units and channel them to the deficit productive units of the economy and to ensure that no unable project is frustrated due to lack of funds and greater facilitation of synergies and sartorial linkages within the economy. there still problem resulting in such interference of which union bank are complaining of.
