RESEARCH BODY

ABSTRACT Within the last decade, the Nigeria government has made tremendous stride towards Universal Basic Education as evidenced by the increasing enrolment of pupils in public primary schools across the country. Unfortunately, the country still may not achieve the Education For All (EFA) and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 2015 target for gender parity in primary education due to the inadequacy of the primary schools system to retain pupils until they graduate, especially in the northwest geo-political zone of the country. The study therefore is designed to determine the effect of Universal Basic Education (UBE) programme on the enhancement of girls’ education in Igabi and Sabon-Gari Local Government Areas of Kaduna State. The specific objectives of the study are to determine the influence infrastructural and instructional facilities on girl-child retention and completion of primary education under the UBE programme in Igabi and Sabon-Gari Local Government Areas and determine the influence of teachers’ quality on girl-child retention and completion of primary education under the UBE programme in study areas.Three hypotheses were formulated to guide the study among which states that the provision of infrastructural and instructional facilities has no significant relationship on girl-child retention and completion of primary education under the UBE programme in the study areas.The system theory was employed as the theoretical framework. Also the study sticks to the survey research design tradition. A multistage sampling technique was adopted to select the 369 participants comprising 15 head teachers, 141 teachers, 197 PTA executive and 16 Local Government Education Authority staff in study areas was used for the study. The answers to the research questionsand objectives were provided with tables of frequencies and percentages, in analyzing the data obtained from the field the multiple regression statistical tools was used to test the hypotheses. The study found out that infrastructural and instructional facilities provided were inadequate to enhance girl-child retention and completion of primary education. It also revealed that there is a acute shortage of teachers in public primary school in the study areas. Based on the findings of this study, it was recommended among others that the enhancement of girl-child education in the study areas require adequate provision of infrastructural and instructional facilities and the recruitment of experienced teachers in public primary schools by the government.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1 Background to the Study
In the last decade, there has been a renewed drive for the universalisation of basic
education in many developing countries, especially in Sub-Sahara Africa. Each of these
countries made concerted efforts towards the realisation of Education for All (EFA) and
Millennium Development Goals (MDGs); which seeks to ensure that by 2015 all children
particularly girls have access to and complete free and compulsory primary education of good
quality and achieving gender equality in education (UNESCO, 2008a).This is because
education is considered the surest weapon to fight illiteracy, ignorance poverty and
discrimination. Moreover, formal education is important for girls and women, since it will
lead to improved maternal health, reduces child mortality, raises level of household nutrition
and increases potential human capital for economic development.
Hanson (1964) cited in Abdulkareem (1994) posited that “Nigeria‟s educational
purpose is the same as national purpose, to create a good society and good life for all it
members and to use all the intellectual and moral resources man has developed and all the
resources he is capable of developing in pursuit of this goal”. Therefore, education is the
most powerful instrument for capacity building of the citizenry in order to pursue
developmental objectives. In fact, the National Policy on Education (2004) regards education
as an instrument par-excellence for effecting national development (FRN 2004).
However, widespread access to formal education has been the prime focus for
Nigeria, since the centre of the 1970s when the Universal Primary Education (U.P.E.) plan
was launched.This prompted sharp increment in enrolment from 6.2 million in the 1975/76
session to 14.8 million in 1992. This sharp increment in enrolment without satisfactory
planning for teachers and facilities made the educational program fizzled due lack of proper
