It is in this consideration that we have chosen ‘Promoting eGovernment in Election Year for Improved Governance’ as the theme for this year’s Nigeria eGovernment Summit 2022.
 
“eGovernence which is the adoption of technology in government processes and service delivery, makes government service delivery efficient and cost effective.’’

It introduces transparency in governance and builds trust between the government and the governed. This year edition, which is the fourth in the series, will not only serve to promote eGovernment but will also focus on how governments can deploy and deepen technologies in service delivery.   

“Technology service providers will share their knowledge, invited agencies of government at federal and state levels will showcase use cases of eGovernment in their domains, while international experts will share with us international best practices and use cases.”
