The study used a survey research design. A researcher-designed questionnaire and an adapted checklist from the National Commission for Colleges of Education, Minimum Standard (2012) for data collection. Mean and simple percentages were used to analyze the research questions. A total of 286 lecturers were proportionately sampled from Federal College of Education, Kano and Sa’adatu Rimi College of Education, Kumbotso, Kano, which were purposively selected for the study. A reliability value of 0.72 was obtained for the frequency of utilization instrument using Cronbach Alpha. The findings revealed that the two Colleges of Education have almost all of the ICT resources required by National Commission of Colleges of Education (NCCE) in Nigeria. The findings also revealed that lecturers’ frequency of use of ICT resources for instruction was not fully encouraged. The study concluded that Colleges of Education in Kano state have basic ICT resources as required by NCCE. The study therefore recommended, among others, that government and school management should provide an enabling environment, such as the provision of infrastructure facilities, internet connectivity, and stable power supply, among others.
