Introduction
One of the gender issues in the twenty first century borders on the relevance of women’s education in contributing positively to problem solving both at the family and national level. Researchers over the years have proved that women who are empowered through formal education contribute positively to nation building while lack of female empowerment in informal education adversely affects the transformation of societal structures including national development. National development is all-embracing and all encompassing and as Uwakwe (2003. p. 3) asserts “it embraces all aspects of social behaviour such as the establishment of law and order, resourcefulness in business dealings, honesty in business relations, sophistication, broadmindedness, familiarity with science modern technology and mechanical gadgets and overall positive national outlook”. National development entails collective effort at efficient running of the country’s affairs.
