COOPERATION

MEANING

Co-operation can be defined as an act of working together to achieve a goal for the good of everyone in the society. An adage says ‘united we stand, divided we fall’. No nation or society can progress without co-operation among her people. As Nigerian citizens, we must work together with our leaders by paying our taxes promptly, voting during election and taking care of public properties meant for our well-being.

EVALUATION

What is co-operation?

ATTRIBUTES OF CO-OPERATION

1. Sharing – To work together, ideas must be shared. People must not hold back information or materials needed for accomplishing a task. It therefore fosters independence of members of the community through a mutually beneficial relationship.

2. Friendship – This refers to the emotional attachment to a person or a group of persons as a result of feeling of affection.

3. Caring – To achieve our set goals we must care for one another as a team. Everyone must be cared for so that they can have a sense of belonging. The leader must care for the followers and the followers must care for the leader. This can only happen if there is co-operation.

4. Team Spirit – Co-operation involves team work. A broom sweeps better as a bunch not as separate units and a tree can never make a forest. Everyone must be part of the task and also sees himself as important as others in the achievement of a set goal
