The world has become a global village where every nation including Nigeria is striving to attain a high level of electronic governance, which revolves around the use of information and communication technology to deliver government services. Nigeria has the fastest growing information and communication technology market in Africa, yet in spite of this, the country is still ranked low in the provision of e-government services to its citizens. Data were analysed qualitatively through content analysis. The paper argues that the emerging growth of ICT in Nigeria has not effectively influenced the development of its e-governance status due to numerous challenges such as the unwillingness on the part of the government to ensure a two way communication pattern in the governing process. One of the suggestions proffered by the paper is that Nigeria and other Sub-Saharan countries should endeavour to keep abreast of new innovations which would aid in the speedy growth of e-governance in the region
