Abstract

The masses connote the lower strata of the society, comprising the low income, and lower!middle income earners, and the less!privileged people in the country. Data from the World Bank reveals that greater percentage of the population live in the rural areas in most low resource countries (developing countries). A major global challenge is how to facilitate a transitioning of the masses to higher social and economic status. This paper performs an objective critique of existing e!Government initiatives that are geared towards enabling socio!economic development of the masses in many developing countries; using Nigeria as a case study, it argued that a change of direction is required. Second, we discussed how e!Government could be a veritable tool for inspiring developments of the masses in developing countries. The propositions of this paper would give impetus for new pragmatic e-government initiatives for socio!economic developments of the masses in developing countries.
