INTRODUCTION

 

1.1    GENERAL BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The word co-operative is all about people working together or working mutually.  The co-operative has been defined by different schools of thought but the variation lies in the degree of emphasis on one aspect or the other.

 

One school of thought describes co-operative as business undertaking owned and operated by voluntary associations in order to provide themselves with work and wages or with goods and services.  But International Co-operative alliance (I.C.A) definition of co-operative states that it is an “Autonomous association of Persons, united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly owned and democratically controlled enterprise.”

 

During the colonial days the seed of co-operation was sown but it could only grow slowly.  At this point co-operatives were restricted to serve only the interest of the paymaster.  Co-operatives then were not allowed to grow or expand to the hinterlands.

 

Ever before the coming of the white men to Nigeria, Nigeria has been practicing co-operation in various aspect of their lives.  In Igbo land for instance, communities co-operated to put up buildings for their members through communal efforts.  Tillage, planting and harvesting of crops were also undertaken.  They existed a system of credit co-operation known as “ISUSU” by which members of a community banned themselves into a union for the purpose of raising found for their members.

 

In Nigeria, the first hint on co-operative emergence occurred during the first world war.  This co-operative which happen to be a consumer was modeled along the Rochdale of England – home of the colonialist.  This earliest co-operative society existed to ration out consumer goods – which was very scarce
