Governments all over the world, Nigeria inclusive desire ways to provide welfare services to citizens with fewer resources, enhance transparency and accountability of public servants. As a result, the goals of the public service in terms of enhanced service delivery come to mind. This is because it serves as the major machinery through which governmental policies are implemented. However, the public service in Nigeria has witnessed widespread criticism as it pertains to the way and manner in which services are delivered. The inability of the public service to achieve its goals has necessitated the call for reform in the public service. In this regard, e-governance seems to be the probable solution. This paper adopts the ex-post-facto research design and found that there are several barriers arising from the adoption of the usual traditional public administrative system standing against the implementation of e-governance in the public service that would have metamorphosed into better service delivery. It is in line with the above findings that the paper argues that public service delivery could be better achieved through e-governance implementation in Nigeria.
