Abstract

The use of ICT in government has set the stage for greater transparency and the possibility for greater citizen participation. ICTs such as Internet, GSM system, computer, and online tools for effective information and communication service delivery should be made available in the local government area. This study surveyed a sample of 200 respondent of Akwukwu-Igbo and Ibusa in Oshimili North local government area. The results of the study confirm previous findings about e-government and the role of ICT in development. Those surveyed pointed out problems of ICT in local government, including power supply, illiteracy/ICTs illiteracy, lack of ICT skills, the high cost of ICTs, and lack of facilities such as cybercafés.
