The respondents fully completed the sample unit of 392 from the sample frame and a non - probability techni que called Purposive or Judgmental Sampling was used. Data were subjected to a Regression and correlation analyses. The Questionnaires were distributed to staffs of the bank and result that there is no significant relationship between bank management, stra tegic planning and bank distress meaning that there are others factors which ultimately determine bank distress such as the go vernment economic policies.
