Abstract: Stronger Worldwide Capacities in science innovations is necessary to allow humanity to achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. A concerted global effort among the Worlds' Scientists, Engineers and Medical experts is needed to identify good strategies .which can help implement effective programmes, sustain progress in reducing poverty and related problems that require strengthened institutions for science, technology and innovation throughout the world at large and Nigeria in particular. This paper highlighted various programmes embarked upon by the government of Nigeria such as National Economic Empowerment and Development Strategy (NEEDS), the National poverty Eradication Programme (NAPEP), the National Basic Education Programme (UBE) etc and how they are faring. We have also drawn different ways through which a strong institution for science, technology and innovation can help Nigeria actualize the MDGs.
