The Kebbi State UBE Board is a parastatal of the Kebbi State Ministry of Education and has been in existence since 1994, under the name,
State Primary Education Board. With the passage of the UBE Act into law in 2004, by the National Assemblies,
the Universal Basic Education Commission was established by the Federal Government and consequently,
all States of the Federation were directed to make enabling laws for the establishment of State UBE Boards.
Kebbi State was in forefront in compliance to the above law establishing the Kebbi State UBE Board in which case it was signed by His Excellency,
The Executive Governor of Kebbi State on the 20th July 2005.
With the signing of UBE Bill into law in the State,
the hitherto law establishing the State Primary Education Board was abrogated and replaced with the State Universal Basic Education Board.
