This paper focused on the potential roles of extension service in the accelerated use of vitamin A cassava cultivar in Nigeria. The sources of information for this research work were mainly drawn from previously published works by recognized authors. Since the vitamin A cassava has not been publicly recognized and used by majority of farmers, there is need for extension to play significant role in its accelerated use. Specifically, the issues addressed include; the meaning of agric extension, objectives of extension services, constraints to effective performance of extension service in Nigeria, potential roles of extension service in vitamin A cassava dissemination etc. Among other things, the findings showed that extension is an educational approach that teaches farmers on best practices for increased productivity. Communicating to individual members of the community advice and assistance with respect to knowledge and methods of technical agriculture, with due consideration of the economic and social circumstances of the individual and other people collectively,  was identified by the paper as an aspect of the objectives of agric extension. Constraints such as inadequate training and turnover of extension staff were identified.
