CHAPTER ONE

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Modern Co-operatives blossomed out of the need to provide economic salvation to common men who were economically exploited during the heat days of the industrial revolution. This view was strongly supported by Okonkwo (1989) who describes the co-operative movement as an invention of necessity, originated from the evils of the industrial revolution from the device adopted by the suffering working classes of the industrial revolution to alleviate their private condition.

In Nigeria the general term co-operatives existed before the accent of modern co-operatives which have high degree of potency for economic salvation. The form of cooperative which is as traditional as it is reciprocal in operation has the precious intent of solving an existential economic problem of the members who have voluntarily agreed to work together for their welfare.
