Abstract

The explosion of digital connectivity, the significant improvements in information and communication technologies (ICTs) and the enforced global competition are revolutionizing the way business is performed and the way organizations compete. ICT is believed to be a powerful enabling tool to address some of the key barriers and challenges for entering the global economy and for future growth potential. ICTs can transform old challenges and create unprecedented possibilities for sustainable economic development, just as it has done for businesses and governance in the industrial world. It offers the potential not just to collect, store, process and diffuse enormous quantities of information at minimal cost, but also, to network, interact and communicate across the world. This paper reviews the challenges of good governance in Nigeria and then focus on the potentials of ICTs for sustainable development of e-Governance. It discusses critical issues and obstacles that will affect the adoption of ICTs for improved governance. The paper provides examples of how ICTs can be used and are being used to improve governance and its sustenance.
