Gender equality is a trending concept that can help in repositioning the national unity which is at the verge of collapsing if allowed in educational practices. Gender equality in education can help in ensuring that both men and women have equal access to education to enhance their knowledge and skills which is essential for the unity of the society. It is often said that no nation can rise above its educational levels. This paper looked into some concept such as gender equality, gender equality in education, national unity and host of other issues. Relationships between education and national unity, gender and national unity and roles of gender equality in education for national unity were discussed. It was concluded that to have unity in the family, society and the nation males and females, young and old should be given equal opportunity, especially in education. Challenges hindering equal access to educational training were also discussed and few recommendations were suggested such that Government, non-governmental organisations and other stakeholders should help in enlightenment and negative socio-cultural beliefs that prevent women from education should be corrected.
