It is indeed with great delight that I welcome all Distinguish Co-operators on this occasion of our inaugural stakeholders’ Conference with the Theme:
“EFFECT AND BENEFIT OF CO-PERATIVE SOCIETY TO OUR LIVING”
This Conference is timely, considering the present economic situation of the Country as regard our individual earnings.
The Global Economic trends at both Macro and Micro level show a consistent downward trend of Low income accrual, this situation has become so worrisome, that even the economic giants to the world which had hitherto won the admiration of the developing nations in the past, by the stability of their economic are now striving for sustainability on the economic stage, how much more the individuals? This has made many nations to look inward on how to improve and maximize the opportunity available for income generation.
Hence the needs for each and every one of us to embrace the Co-o-operative Society for its immense benefits, as supported by the Bible verse of Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labour, for if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion”
The OIU Multipurpose Cooperative Society Abuja has been in existence for about four (4) years now under the leadership of Mr. Ody Morag whom was the pioneer leader and handed over to Mr. Charles Ekweogwu who was at the head of affairs till the end of the year 2014.
I Mr. Alex Chuka Anyogu was appointed to take over with the consent of the joint OIU Exco OMCS Board of Trustee Meeting held on 24th January, 2015. We were saddled with the responsibility of proffering a Road Map on the way Forward which by the Grace of God, we have successfully done, though we sincerely apologies for the long delay in calling for this very conference which due to the enormous task in strengthening our administrative records and structures for effective management.
It’s our hope and desire to move the Onitsha Improvement Union, Abuja forward, hence the need for the restructuring of the OIU – Abuja Multipurpose Co-operative Society for more orientated and improved
management, with the view of achieving our main objective of setting up the business venture.
To the OIU Executive we salute your vision, the past and present Administrators of the Co-operative Society we are proud of you for your courage and efforts towards the progress so far achieved. Once more
we appreciate the opportunity given us to serve.
As we gather here today to rejuvenate our great Co-operative Society, I sincerely employ each and every one of you to contribute in moving the Society forward, by searching inwards with a view to identifying and harnessing various ways of boosting our Internally Generated Incomes for the Co-operative Society. For the benefit of all members in particular and OIU-Abuja in general.
