The study used a quantitative and qualitative research design for the purpose of making valid conclusions. Quantitative design which was classified in two broad categories, that is; experimental and general survey design examined the impact of supplier evaluation on the performance as an independent variable where as qualitative design involved the use of questions to obtain views from the respondents. The findings of the study revealed that early marriage still thrives in spite of various conventions against the practice. Although reasons often adduced in favour of the practice may appear attractive on face value, the physical health and psychological consequences of early marriage can constitute a huge price. Education of the girl-child must take pre-eminent position in order to stem the tide of early marriage and its consequences. The study draws us as a numerous severe consequences resulting from the practice of early marriage. Early marriage is intrinsically linked to low levels of education, high levels of violence and abuse, social isolation, severe health risks and harmful power dynamics and results in increased gender inequality and vulnerability to poverty for girls, young women, families and the society as a whole. This practice also threatens the international development effort to fight against poverty and related challenges in developing countries. The recommendation of the study are Improving the economic conditions of rural communities and peasant families by designing income generating schemes in accordance with the objective reality of the area, and supporting parents who fail to send their daughters to school due to poverty, Providing cash incentives for parents to keep their daughters in school as long as possible for example by covering expenses for buying learning materials ,creating job opportunities for girls completing primary education.
