Abstract: The study investigated the management of girl-child education in Nigeria federal universities following the complaints by some female students and their parents on various unexpected problems confronting the female students in tertiary institutions in Nigeria. The population of the study was 27 federal universities in Nigeria. A stratified random sampling method was used to select 6 federal universities from the Nigerian six geo-political zones. From each of the selected university, a stratified random sampling method was used to select 150 students (75 males and 75 females) and forty lecturers (20 males and 20 females). A total of 900 students (450 males and 450 females) and 240 lecturers (120 males and 120 females) participated in the study. The questionnaire titled University Gender Management Inventory (UGMI) was used to collect the data. The validity of the questionnaire was done by experts in Educational Management. Test-retest method was used to ascertain the reliability of the instrument. A Z-Test and common percent were the statistics used to analyze the data. The major finding was that the female students are highly sexually harassed and this has highly affected many female students from unlocking theirgreat potentials. Based on this finding, it was recommended that university management should put a mechanism in place to control the ugly situation.
