The aim of this study was to examine the extent to which socio-cultural factors, specifically; age, gender, and ethnic background influence the adoption of e-government services by Nigerians. Three aspects of the program (e-government) were identified viz. openness, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness. The methodology of this research is quantitative research based on a survey method using questionnaire as a data collection technique. The findings showed that age, gender and ethnic background all affect the satisfaction and adoption of e-government in Nigeria. It is believed that policy makers will find it helpful if they knew citizens’ perceptions toward e-government services.
