Abstract

In this paper, the author presents and emphasizes massive deployment, diffusion and use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in Nigeria as a necessary tool to enhance national development. A brief description of ICTs and the level of their adoption, diffusion and use in Africa and specifically in Nigeria were given. ICT’s relationship with national development as well as roles of stake holders in creating an enabling environment (so that ICTs will be massively deployed, diffused and used in Nigeria to enhance national development) were analyzed. Technical solutions to foster an enabling environment in Nigeria as well as the implication of achieving this feat were also considered and relevant recommendations were made to position Nigeria strategically so as to benefit from the numerous advantages that massive deployment, diffusion and use of ICTs present to any nation.
