The study examines the Water Borne Diseases (WBDs) eradiation programmes of the Federal Government as stipulated by the National Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Strategic Framework, with a view to achieving the Millennium Development Goals. The study is significant in the sense that the findings will guide the authorities in the choice of the appropriate strategies to be adopted in the eradication of water borne diseases (WBDs) in Nigeria. The study makes use of secondary data obtained from National Bureau of Statistics affiliated office in the Federal Government Secretariat, Yola and secondary data from the National Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Strategic Framework which was obtained through the internet. The secondary data obtained from these sources are used in establishing the reported case of Water Borne Diseases and notifiable diseases in Nigeria in year 2002 (pre-intervention year and year 2007) (post-intervention period). The comparison of 2007 data on WBDS with data on same for 2002 reveals that WBDs declines by 5.75 percent. The study recommends that a search should continue for a better, potent and result-oriented intervention that will rid Nigeria of WBDs.
