This paper examined the impediments and panacea to teacher education and professional learning programme in Nigeria. The paper is premised on the fact that there are factors mitigating teacher education and professional learning in the country. The paper made use of secondary data in examining the investigating variables of the study. The paper concluded that teacher education and professional learning programme is being affected by a myriad of factors which serves as a bottleneck to the improvement of teacher education and professional learning in the country. The paper suggested that; teacher education and professional learning programme should be given urgent attention by the government and factors affecting its improvement should be attended to by relevant agencies to enhance the programme and by extension improve national growth and development; as only qualified teachers will be involved in the teaching-learning process at various fields of endeavour in the country. This assertion gives credence to the belief that ‘teachers are the life wire of every society’, Nigeria inclusive.
