The argument on the relevance of the present Nigerian educational curriculum content to the needs and aspirations of the Nigerian society has gradually become an acceptable national debate. Teachers, students, parents and all the stakeholders of the educational sector have suddenly discovered the unrealistic nature of the Nigerian educational curriculum and the need to change same. These changes, some believe could be in the areas of selection and organization of the curriculum content, the distribution, development and use of instructional or teaching materials, curriculum implementation and evaluation. While it is very important to consider all these, it is also more pertinent to note that the selection and organization of the curriculum content especially at the primary and secondary schools levels is the bedrock for a sound educational system. It is therefore the concern of this paper to examine the present state of the Nigerian national educational curriculum vis-à-vis the new 9-year Basic Education Curriculum with a view to showcasing its baselessness and suggesting the way out in having a more practical regionalized curriculum as the solution to the problems of Nigeria’s curriculum content.
