Background of the Study
There has never been any argument over the link that exists between government and co-operation. Government is said to be the group of people who are responsible for controlling and organizing a country or a state. It is also seen as one who is charted by a state and given many legal rights as an entity separated from its owners.
Asogwa (2008) defined government as a process agent or a structure. As a process it becomes the act or ability to convert the desire or will of a group to conform with the behaviour of these given the authority to direct the affairs of members of a society.
Corporation is known as an organized unit which utilizes the basic economic resources to create utility in order to achieve certain aims and goals.
Government corporation is known as public corporation. It is a legal entity or legal department that understands commercial activities on behalf of the owner government.
Odoh (2006) defined government corporation as a part of the organic whole or economy established and operated by the government or it’s agencies for the purpose of the production of goods and services for governed.
The main aim and objective of it’s establishment is to provide the services to the public.

iv. Lack of dedicated trade union.
ANAMMCO is partially being owned by the five Eastern State Governments. These state governments wield great influence on the activities of the company. Some relatives of those at the corridor of power in these states, with little or no business acumen, are not only given appointments in the company but are also made to man some sensitive positions. Some of these relatives and party faithfuls are sometimes appointed as managers irrespective of their deficiencies. Another serious problem facing ANAMMCO is lack of committed unionism. Trade union generally helps in moderation of the activities of both the workers and the management. If the union moderates negatively it leads to backward effect on the company.
