Education as a hallmark in this writing has to be originally talked about before conceptual purpose with which the researcher wants to write about Education.
Education in the broad science means more than intellectual aspect of it. A.B Fafunwa (1991) knowledgeable states that in the beginning of the world, Adam saw the animals first before he named them therefore, no study of history of education particularly in Africa is complete without adequate knowledge of the traditional or indigenous educational system prevalent in Africa before the important religion which have influenced Nigeria education in no small measure are of recent development compared with the indigenous system of education which is as old as man himself in Africa.
Dr P. Eya (1993) on the same note said that, every society, simple or complex has it’s own system for training and educating it’s youth, and education for the good life has been one of the most persistent concerns of men.
Based on this acceleration, the period between 1976-1980 witnessed an unprecedented growth at the level of education – primary, secondary and tertiary institutions in Nigeria, which in the same vein witnessed the emergency of adult education in this different learning sector.
Adult education is such a relatively new field of social practices that is still in the process of forming new identity. Adult education describes the process of adult learning in its broadest sense. It encompasses practically all experiences of matured men and women by which they acquire new knowledge, understanding, skills, attitudes, interests of values. It is a process used by adults on their self development, both alone and with others which is also used by institutions of all kinds for the growth and development of their employees, members and clients.
Adult education when compared with other discipline within the field of education has just emerged unlike older disciplines which have enjoyed systematic research and training.
This exercise is tackled individually based on orientation, environment, motives, privileges etc. It could even occur as restraining in an organization or even for some other motives irrespectively.
Adult education is also a concept. The acquisition of reading and writing skills which are to be applied for the development of the community. Adult education is concerned with social welfare of agricultural extension and community development. Adult education can be seen to contribute immensely to the growth and development of a society. It is a lucrative profession that extends in many directions and not only in teaching profession, hence listing of job potentialities of adult educators.
Based on the above knowledge of adult education worldwide which is newly spreading up like a wide fire, the state is not left out in this educational exuberance, it is on this that in the year 1973 emerged the ABC university of the air with a view to be co-operating with the Institute of Management and Technology Enugu and University of Nigeria Nsukka Programme respectively.
