CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
The history of co –operative societies cannot be completed without making references to the (1884) Rochdale equitable pioneers experience. The first known co –operative society, the world over, reared its head in Rochdale in (1884). That was when the impact of industrial revolution was been felt greatly by the working class.
Akpaneua (2001), observed that to weavers in Rochodale who contributed money and established co –operativebusiness where the founder of co –operative society in the world. Akpaneua (2001), maintainedthat at the end of the business year,theRochdale co-operative discovered that the profit made by them was so far greater than the total profit they have made,if they had to work an individual basis without co-operation.
Since (1844) the objective of co-operative society has spread to many roots and corners. In west African countries,many cooperatives societies have been established especially among the farmers, producers and buyersin Nigeria, the history of co-operatives dated back to (1937) during which producers and buyers came together to form a co-operative union.
Since that time,many co-operatives organization have been spring up here and there are to cater for the interest of one group or the other.All co-operative societies in formation receive model bye-Laws for their guidance and describe the complete working of the society.

This has lead to the formation ofvarious co- operative societies among various groups in the country. This has lead to formation of various co-operative unions among artistry, trader, consumers, producers etc. in recent times; the government of Nigeria has stressing the importance of co-operative societies in national development.
