There is poor nature of health situation in the world generally and in Sub-Saharan African particularly, these issues became worrisome and mind bugging to world leaders and leading development institutions around the globe. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) was a right target to reduced maternal motility within its specific period of time, given 2015 as a target year. This research paper was targeted to find out post-millennium development goal achievement on maternal health in Nigeria, secondary data were retrieved from National Bureau of Statistic (NBS) and other relevant source of data which were subjected in analysis using graphical data presentation. The result shows recorded slow progress in reducing maternal mortality and creating universal access to reproductive health. Performance in the MDG, especially, in universal access to reproductive health, has been sluggish and possesses greater challenge to women health. Although, there is a significant reduction in maternal mortality rate within the period of research and the level of reduction in maternal mortality (about 53%) is still quite below the target of 75% reduction. Measures to improve the Post- Millennium Development Goal on maternal health have been considered.
