ABSTRACT

This research work aptly examines the use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) in Abuja Municipal Area Council as a paradigm of Local Government Areas in Nigeria. The study contends that for government to fulfil their non-negotiable functions, ICT is a necessity. Moreso, for more effectiveness, these innovations should start from the grassroots i.e. the Local Governments.

Thus, there is the dire need for actions to be put in place to institute viable ICT units and Departments and also Local Government Information Systems (LGIS).

The data used in this study was collected from both primary and secondary sources. The primary sources were questionnaires and oral interview. Some research questions were asked as a guide to the respondents. The questionnaire contained nineteen structured questions designed in both open and close ended style. The secondary sources of data collection on the other hand included textbooks, journals, government publications and internet sources. The data analysis revealed that ICT usage will enhance worker’s productivity in Local Governments: that ICT usage will improve financial accountability in Local Governments: that ICT will heighten human resource development: and that ICT will boost human resource inventory management in the Local Governments. Based on these findings, the study made a number of recommendations bordering on key actors- the Federal and State Governments, the leadership of the Local Governments, the staff members of Local Governments and the people at large.
