Abstract: General approaches to quality education, essential for national and regional development, are undergoing major global changes. In 2000, the United Nations solemnly reaffirmed the international development goals and as a result, the priority attached to a concerted fight for quality education has taken on a new dimension. This paper assesses the extent to which the Nigerian Government has made determined efforts to ensuring that quality education agendas are met. The study employs a quantitative approach to data collection and analysis. The results reveal that Nigeria is doing very little when it comes to achieving quality education towards meeting the millennium development goals (MDGs). Recommendations are proffered. This academic work is addressed to the Nigerian Government, National University Commission, Ministry of Education, education planners, researchers and development practitioners.
