In spite of the efforts by successive governments to eradicate extreme poverty in Nigeria, poverty incidence has remained high. This study, therefore, attempted to evaluate the implementation of NAPEP with a view to ascertaining its effectiveness to eradicate absolute poverty in Benue State. Questionnaire, personal interviews and documents were employed in data collection and the data were analyzed using tables, simple percentages and t-test. The study revealed that NAPEP activities were poorly coordinated among local, state and national offices. It was therefore recommended among others, that there should be an effective coordination in the implementation process among NAPEP offices at the various levels.
