Keywords E-government, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Gartner’s four phase of e-Government model


This study assessed e-Government adoption in Ekiti state government ministries, agencies and departments. It determined the availability of e-Government resources and infrastructure, the stage of e-government implementation and the challenges. Gartner’s four phase of e-Government model was used for analysis. Social survey design approach was adopted. Data were collected with a structured questionnaire administered to the Director of IT and administration in the 29 ministries, agencies and departments. Collected data were structured into grouped frequency distributions. Findings revealed that Ekiti state had made an entrance into e-Government. Resources and infrastructure for e-Governance were available and the State was found to be at the second phase (interaction) of e-Government process and has not successfully demonstrated its ability to progress towards the higher phases of e-government. Infrastructural constraints topped the list of challenges militating against successful application of e-Government in Ekiti state. The study recommended that the state should have a policy for bandwidth optimization and an effective legal framework that could create an environment conducive for promoting and executing e-government.
