  6. Summary and Conclusion

Universal Basic Education (UBE) program was launched in Nigeria in 1999, to increase the access of the children of school age to basic education. There is no doubt that adequate funding of the program is germane in view of the experiences of the past, particularly with regards to the collapse of the Universal Primary Education in western and eastern regions in 1955 and 1957 respectively.
