2.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Cooperative education started on Nigeria since 1943 with very little success to show for it, it has suffered great neglect if compared with the level of cooperative education in the advanced countries where cooperative triumph. This could be as a result of the level of literacy of individuals, institutions and establishments toward cooperative education. The institute to higher learning which was supposed to have been the preacher of cooperative education there by given sense of belonging and wariness to individuals education with keen interest.
All these ugly incidence continued into the institute of management and technology (IMT) curriculum as part of the courses to be studies in the institution, this was exactly after twenty years of cooperative education been introduced in Nigeria.
The institute of management and technology (IMT) been the pioneering institute of cooperative education have come a long way in giving it a face life to cooperative education in Nigeria which other existing higher institution have failed to accomplished over the years.
Nevertheless, inspite of the fact that IMT cooperative Department is the first in Nigeria’s institution, these have been a very low turn-up of students coming into studying this course which is one of the problem the study intends to emphasize.
