The study was set out to examine how literacy by radio was organized and also consider the cost of operating it. This will allow the national and international policy maker on illiteracy education to see the need for devoting more of their resources to Adult Literacy Education. The study centres on the adult illiterate in Ekiti state also focus on the activities of Ekiti state adult and non-formal education agency, towards implementing the National literacy by radio programme. Oral interview and secondary data was used to arrive at the conclusion. It was therefore concluded that radio study group with print support was not enough in the state. All the illiterate did not have access to the radio set and print media. The operation cost of the programme was too small for the programme to be effective. Federal government should pump ₦96.5 billion, instead of ₦96.5 million and share ₦2.5 billion instead of ₦2.5 million. The state counterpart funding should also be released without any hindrance. The cost of facilitations alone (₦2.94 million) was greater than what the Federal Government allocates to the state (₦2.5 million).
