This paper identified sustainable Agricultural Education as a key to National Security, by looking at roles of agricultural education which include preparing graduates with right professional competence in vocational skills, producing teachers who will be capable of motivating students to acquire interest in agriculture, equipping the students teachers with adequate knowledge  and ability  to  establish and manage  a model  school farm effectively and providing a sound background to enhance  further academic  and professional progression  of the students-teachers. All these  are aimed at providing enabling ground in eradicating ignorance, poverty and sustainable food security for the country. Recommendations are made on how to achieve this laudable agriculture for selfreliance, so that  Nigeria  will soon be  among the  committee  of developed  Nations with peaceful  society.
