Financial System Stability has become a major macroeconomic policy objective in Nigeria partly because of the severe consequences of the previous episodes of financial crises in the country. This paper conducts an evaluation of stability in the system between 1997 and 2016 using the macro prudential approach. Using indicators of capital adequacy, asset quality and profitability, the analysis is conducted on a time series basis to highlight the strengths and vulnerabilities in the system during the review period. The indicators show that by the end of 2016, clear signs of impending crises had started to emerge in the system. The suggestions proffered for ameliorating such a crises include the moderation of inflation, close monitoring of the risk management framework of the banks and strict enforcement of corporate governance standards.
