The paper reviewed the importance of science education in the development of every nation of the world including Nigeria. However, it argued that the science education in Nigeria as studied in the Universities, Polytechnics, and Colleges of Education could not be functional. It is not functional because it only produced graduates who are not creative. The paper attributed this to the lack of the good governance in the country. The pinnacle of bad governance was summarized to be corruption in the nation. Visionary leaders, total war against corruption, Youth Scientific Collaboration Programme (YSCP) and much more are some of the solutions recommended by the authors.
