The study was on resources availability and implementation of Universal Basic Education (UBE) programme in secondary schools in Ikot Abasi Education Zone of Akwa Ibom State. Three research questions were raised. The study adopted a survey research design. The study population was the 7 secondary schools in the zone. A purposive sampling technique was used since the entire population was studied. A checklist, Universal Basic Education (UBE) Act and a questionnaire” (RAIUBEQ) were used to elicit information from 7 principals. The instrument was validated by three research experts and reliability of the questionnaire was established using Cronbach Alpha Reliability analysis which gave a reliability coefficient of 0.82. The data collected were analysed using mean and standard deviation. The findings of the study show that most UBE schools do not have enough teachers and the classroom blocks and desks/furniture available were not adequate to accommodate the students. Furthermore, most principals get impress but not enough for the execution of meaningful project. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that the Akwa Ibom State Government, should adequately plan for UBE programme in the state by getting accurate data/statistics on human and material resources and make provision for these resources.
