Girls' education in Nigeria has been marred by various challenges ranging from poverty, cultural barriers, early marriage, poor educational infrastructure, gender discrimination, and insurgent activities. Despite numerous efforts by the government and non-governmental organizations, the girl child still faces several barriers to accessing quality education. This research article reviews the current state of girls' education in Nigeria, identifies the challenges hindering their education, and proposes possible solutions to these problems. The study relied on a thorough review of relevant literature and reports. The findings reveal that the Nigerian government needs to implement policies that promote equal opportunities for girls' education, invest in infrastructure development, and prioritize education in the country's budget allocation. Non-governmental organizations should also partner with government agencies to provide scholarships and support services to girls from impoverished backgrounds. Finally, cultural and traditional practices that discriminate against the girl-child need to be addressed through sensitization campaigns and community-based interventions.
