1.1 BACKGROUND OF THESTUDY
In order to conduct the business of the government effectively, the tasks of government are broken into different parts and each task is assigned to a ministry, department of bureau.
In Nigeria, we are faced with problem of employment and this has invariably contributed to the level of our department economic wise. It is in recognition of this problem that the Nigerian governments (federal, state and local) are now mounting series of programmes designed to intimate people to appreciate the importance of cooperative business and its employment potentials.
A typical example is the establishment of people bank, cooperative inspirations in both the rural and urban areas, Owerri North local Government inclusive. By definition, cooperative is the coming together of people with socio-economic problems and by pooling their resource together try to solve their problem with guiding principles and which must be registered afterwards.
Therefore, cooperative and employment is a way by which the cooperative organization seeks 60 generate employment, thereby reducing unemployment during this employment generation, cooperatives are faced with various problems both from within and outside which seek to distribute but which is able to be solved when the problems affective it are solved.
Cooperative generate employment in various ways due to the fact that it can be small such and large scale through which works which include mental, skilled, labour etc. are expected to be seen, meaning that cooperatives can generate employment from the various sectors seen in our environmental service as a guard stick in disking using developed from undeveloped or developing countries. Economists are of the view that countries with high rate of employment are low in productivity Todora (1997:29). Every government in the world including Nigerian makes efforts to develop by introducing new programmes and policies recognizing the fact that economic growth is weak on employment and availability of resource, hence this programme is worth giving a trial.
It is against this background that researcher is motivated to choose this topic “cooperative and Employment Generation” in realization of the fact that every economic recover and industrialization would be faster and flourish more in our round area and cities Owerri north was chosen because of its geographical commercial and economic significance in Nigeria
- STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
It has been the perspective if many that cooperative ends up in very little work activities and has got nothing much to do with employment generation. This dies not seem to me that they misconstruction or underestimate it because they lack the proper knowledge and understanding of its contribution. This further delays our desire to attain great economic height.
