Education is a key factor for the development of any nation. Education performs a major role in equipping the individual with the skill and knowledge, which will help to transform any society. It is pertinent to say that education is the greatest investment that any nation can provide for the quick development of its natural and human resources. It is against this back drop that this paper canvasses for investment in girl-child education for national development. The paper defines the concept of the girl-child; discusses girl-child education and national development; benefits of investment in girl child education; factors militating against investment in girl-child education and in conclusion recommendation are made on how to enhance the lot of the girl-child.
