Human security safeguards the vital core of all human lives from critical pervasive threats, in a way that is consistent with long-term human fulfillment despite the increased level of unemployment and insecurity in the country. Entrepreneurial education as a tool promotes skills that enable individual to be self-employed and self-reliant which influences the vital core of human lives such as food, economy and social stability. This study was carried out to examine the perceived imperative influence of entrepreneurial education on human security. A descriptive survey research design of the ex-post facto type utilizing a self-structured Likert type questionnaire entitled Questionnaire on Entrepreneurial Education and Human Security (QEEHS) with a reliability index of 0.75 was used to elicit appropriate response from the study population. A stratified random sampling technique was used to group the research location into five groups while four hundred (400) respondents were selected randomly from each group to make two thousand (2000) respondents as sample size. The data obtained were analyzed using the inferential statistics of multiple regression at 0.05 alpha level while the two negative hypotheses formulated were rejected. This revealed that entrepreneurial education imperative index (food, economic and social stability) are significant factors perceived to influence human security. It was recommended amongst others that government should have more locations and centers for skill acquisition to complement school-based entrepreneurial education. Individual and voluntary organization should complement government effort in this line to further help masses to be self-employed.
