THE ROLE OF COOPERATIVE SOCIETY TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF RURAL AREAS.
(A CASE STUDY OF AMUWO ODOFIN L.G.A, LAGOS STATE)

ABSTRACT
                This study examined “The role of cooperative society towards the development of rural areas with reference to Amuwo Odofin LGA of Lagos State”. We used primary and secondary sources to generate data for the study analyzed via content and historical analysis. From the data collected the study concluded that more attention should be given to the  cooperative society so as to improve rural developments, the study recommended that government should encourage cooperatives by providing incentives and by loosening its grip on co-operatives to allow for self-help and self-responsibility principles of cooperativeness. Also further research aimed at finding other roles cooperative societies can aid development of the rural areas” should be encouraged although the research was limited to a specific area (Amuwo Odofin LGA, Lagos). Based on the problems of the cooperatives, it is advised that further research on this topic be aimed at finding better roles of cooperative society towards the development of rural areas in Nigeria and Africa in general.
