Security is an imperative for every nation of the world. This is even more vital for a developing nation like Nigeria. Existing studies revealed that scientific and technological advancements in many developing nations have in no small measure help in reshaping their security capabilities which inturn has tremendously mitigated the impact of security threats. Drawing from this background this paper therefore x-rays some security threats in Nigeria that reveal that the country as a nation requires transformation in science and technology education to tackle the increasing insecurity level that has hitherto destroyed the corporate existence of the nation. The meanings of science and technology as well as the concept of global security are explained. The interactions of these are explored and the implications to the Nigeria science and technology education are drawn. The paper concludes with some suggestions among which is that Nigeria Government should invest not only in science and technology education but should also use the right policy framework to develop appropriate labour force through science and technology education.
