The modern trend is for an increasing proportion of births to take place in maternity Centres, hospitals and similar institutions. This is necessary to ensure provision of Basic Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (BEmONC). The objective of this study was to assess quality of BEmONC care services in North East and North West Geo-Political zones of Nigeria. Descriptive survey research design was used. Five hundred and twenty-four (524) questionnaires were administered; 450 (83%) questionnaires were returned. 424 (81%) were found to be good for analysis. This study revealed that the quality and utilization of BEmOC services in PHC centres of North East and North West geo-political zones of Nigeria is very low. Result also shows that there is no significant relationship between utilization and quality of BEmONC services in PHC centres of North East and North West geo-political zones of Nigeria, since the t-calculated of 1.29 is less than tcritical of 1.96, it was therefore recommended that more staff be employed and be trained continuously in the provision of basic emergency obstetric care services.
