The State Cooperative Law, which sets down the rules governing cooperative societies in the state, is now being reviewed by the State Government of Ekiti.
At a meeting with leaders of cooperative societies in Ado-Ekiti, Mrs. Omotayo Adeola, the State Commissioner for Trade, Industries, Investment, and Cooperatives, made this announcement.
Emphasizing the government’s dedication to formulating policies and programs that enhance the financial stability of cooperative societies, ensuring their proper management and sustained financial viability, she stressed the crucial role played by cooperative societies in the economic development of any society.
She also disclosed the state government’s intention to quickly follow through on its pledge to invest one billion naira in the cooperative sector.
Mrs. Adeola pleaded for cooperators to pay back their outstanding loans within the allotted time in order to increase the number of beneficiaries throughout cooperative societies.
