THE ROLE OF WOMEN’S EDUCATION IN NATION-BUILDING

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

THE STUDY’S BACKGROUND

There is no doubt that women play an important role in the development of human society (IES). Recently, the need and importance of women’s education has grown, and most countries, particularly developing countries, have stated that they will create a pathway for women to be educated. The world has also begun to recognize the importance of women’s education as it has evolved. The first world conference was held on March 8th to examine the changes for women in their bid to take their place alongside men in nation building.

Education is so highly valued in Nigeria that it is regarded as a prerequisite for all societal shortcomings as well as the most reliable means of nation building. “Education itself is the development of an individual through training, transmission of what is worthwhile to the point where he is able to fit into his environment and contribute to the best of his ability, to the well-being of society,” writes Omegbe (1998).

The national policy on education stated unequivocally that the Federal Government of Nigeria has adopted education as an excellent instrument for effective nation building; as a result of this belief, education has been pursued zealously in the majority of Nigeria. It should be noted that women make up roughly half of the world’s population, work one-third of the hours, earn one-tenth of the world’s income, and have less than one-hundredth of the world’s properly registered in his name.

According to the World Bank Report (1996), women make up a higher percentage of the rural populace; out of approximately 70% of Nigeria’s rural populace, women account for 50%; as a result, they bear the brunt of the difficulties of rural life. Similarly, Okukpon (1994) states that “women constitute more than half of the adult population.”

They provide 80 percent of the food requirement and play an important role in food handling and home maintenance. The high rate of female non-participation is concerning, and there is a need to raise awareness about the dangers of not participating or playing an active role in nation building. Most Nigerian states, including Edo State, have expressed strong interest in women’s education projects aimed at increasing women’s productivity and contributing to nation building.

Fortunately, women have not given up their fight against discrimination. They have asked for additional concessions and strategies aimed at emancipation in order to contribute their fair share to the nation. Education is widely regarded as the most efficient and effective means of transforming women.

The most important role women have to play in contributing to the nation’s building is a topic that is currently popular, and many emerge and activities are directed toward women in the country through Federal States and Local Government grams. According to Edukugbo (2002), cited in Imogie (2002), a country’s wealth is determined not by the abundance of its revenue or the strength of its fortifications, but by the number of its educated citizens, men and women of enlightenment and character.

Despite the effects of the state agenda, the Federal Government and Non-Governmental Organizations are moving toward women education programs. To what extent have the goals and objectives been met in order to enable women to participate in nation building?
