COOPERATIVE SOCIETIES AND THE ACTUALIZATION OF THE FADAMA III PROJECT (A STUDY OF THE THIRD NATIONAL FADAMA DEVELOPMENT PROJECT IN ENUGU STATE)

ABSTRACT
In this five chapter research work, an exposé is carried out on the role of cooperative societies in ensuring the success of the FADAMA III project. Chapter one presents an introduction to the research while chapter two consists of a review of related literatures, in which subject matters such as the scope, benefits and implementation arrangement of FADAMA III as well as the importance, problems of cooperative societies and their possible solutions are identified. Chapter three and four consist of the research design and methodology as well as the data analysis and interpretation while chapter five consist of the summary of findings, recommendation and conclusion. Based on the research, it will be observed that the success of the FADAMA III basically depends on the progress of the FUGs and FCAs which are registered Fadama cooperatives, however these cooperatives are still faced with some challenges such as poor awareness, low level of education and poverty level of the members. There is therefore need for more public awareness about the benefits of the FADAMA III project especially in the rural areas. There is also need for a slash down in the members’ counterpart contribution especially for the newly registered FUGs and FCAs particularly in the area of input support.
