Secondary data were source from the journals, text books and newspapers.The findings revealed that the commission is given powers to audit and examine the financial records of the SUBEBs by checking their receipts and expenditure of the accessed FGN-UBE intervention but it seem that the program is living a lot of issues untouched leading to corruption, mismanagement of funds as well under utilization of UBE.
