As the deadline of December 2015 for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) approaches, this paper examined using non-parametric econometric techniques-Deviation Measurement Equation Tests- the achievement recorded in Nigeria, and observed that the level of achievement of this goal are mixed in nature. For instance while MDGs 1, 2, 3 and 7 are near total achieved, goals 4, 5 and 8 are on course to be achieved, however a wide gap exists between achieved and expected achievement of the goal 6. This paper therefore recommends that an aggressive approach should be adopted so as to achieve the desired results for all the goals.
