The issues and future prospects of Insurance Co-operatives in Nigeria are examined in this paper. In this country, a survey was performed to gather field information on participants’ perspectives on building co-operative insurance in Nigeria. In conducting study, it was determined that the Insurance Co-operative has several key issues, including a shortage of competent personnel. This shows that, with better employee training and additional services, the Nigerian insurance cooperative has a promising future.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The country’s economic framework is not well-structured enough to make life comfortable for all elements of society. Furthermore, life and property are acquired, which has therefore called for increasingly sophisticated ways to insurance to adequately protect against life and property threats.
A variety of clubs are springing up as a means of providing socio-economic security to individuals, such as rotary clubs, social clubs, philanthropic organizations, and co-operative societies. Unfortunately, the activities of these organizations, as defined in their objectives, are divergent and have only had a minor impact on the nation’s overall goal; in what direction?
The purpose of bringing these organizations together is to merge their disparate goals into a unified force capable of realizing lofty goals of a better living for a larger number of people. These incidents occurred when individuals’ resources were pooled for the purpose of management and self-security, which is the noble role of cooperative insurance.
Given Nigeria’s lack of a well-developed social security system, it is critical that efforts be made to raise insurance awareness among the majority of the people.
Insurance cooperatives, in particular, might expand into areas that are critical to the cooperative movement. Cooperative insurance is significant not only for the development of the domestic insurance industry, but also for the general development process.

Another issue is how to strike a balance between the need for member engagement in decision-making and the need for every corporate organization to make decisions quickly and with knowledge.

In light of co-operative principles about surplus sharing and society awareness about co-operatives, is building co-operative insurance the most likely form of the entity? As a result, the difficulty is determining the various organizational forms that cooperative insurance can take.
