The study carried out a needs assessment of the provision and utilization of instructional materials for implementing accounting education curriculum in federal colleges of education in South-South Nigeria. Two research questions were raised and two null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The study adopted sequential explanatory mixed methods research design. The entire population of 68 accounting educators and 148 final year accounting education students were studied without sampling. A structured and validated questionnaire with an overall reliability co-efficient of 0.82, and semi-structured interviews were used for data collection. Mean, standard deviation and t-test were used to analyse quantitative data collected while thematic analysis and hand written field notes were used for qualitative data. The study discovered that accounting educators and graduating students agreed that instructional materials are little provided and lowly utilized for implementing accounting education curriculum. Small gap exists between accounting educators and their graduating students on the extent of provision and utilization of instructional materials for implementing the curriculum and they were not significant.
