The purpose of this paper is to examine adult continuing education programmes for sustainable national development in Nigeria. The paper analyzes how adult continuing education programmes could be utilized for sustainable national development. In spite of Nigeria’s affluence in human and material resources, it is still being classified among countries with high level of illiteracy and poverty; it is also being classified as a developing country. This paper x-rays sustainable national development and makes a case for adult continuing education as a veritable means for achieving it. The paper concludes with some far reaching recommendations as a way forward; one of which is that the three tiers of government – federal, state and local, should allocate appropriate funds to adult education and they should as well empower the poor masses at the grassroot because we cannot achieve sustainable development where we have a nation where majority of the adult population are illiterates.

Keywords: Adult Continuing Education Programme, National development and Sustainable National Development., Sustainable Development, Utilization
