The global transformation of administrative process from manual to electronic means has necessitated the emergence of e-government in order to ensure efficient and effective service delivery to all stakeholders. Through e-governance, government services will be made available to citizens in a convenient, efficient and transparent manner. The paper examines the implications and challenges of e-governance implementation in Nigeria. The paper also reveals that the implementation of e-governance has encouraged effective cost-service delivery and facilities cross collaboration and co-ordination among organs of government at different levels.It argues that e-government implementation is faced with such challenges like poor infrastructure, change management, connectivity problems, unstable power supply, vandalization of cable and facility, lack of accessibility and low consumer purchasing power.The paper therefore recommends that infrastructure in areas of telecommunication network, regular electricity supply; kiosks that will allow citizens to have access to information should be developed. Also, for sustainability of IT initiative, people should be educated at all levels about the benefits of technology and the advantages of e-government should be communicated to all and sundry in order to ensure popular support in terms of capacity building, readiness and financial sustainability should be properly evaluated.
