This paper examines Result Based Management (RBM) as a key component in effective Total Quality Assurance (TQA) of Nigeria education system. The recent paradigm shift in tracking government investment in all sectors paved way for RBM in planning and implementation of all the production process of any given organization/institutions- Education sector inclusive. A hard look at current trends over the last decade in quality evaluation and control leads to some concerns to all stakeholders in terms of assuring quality in the education sector. The adoption of RBM in planning and management of the sector no doubt will have a spill over effect on TQA of Nigeria education thus resulting in continuous improvement of Nigeria education sector making it becoming more aware of the ever- changing societal needs and react immediately to these needs thus resulting in effective utilization of existing resources in making the sector more productive as well as engaging all key players /stakeholders of the sector in quality mission.
