Background to the Study
Information Communication Technology (I.C.T.) have impacted almost all the sectors of the world economy, though it is accepted that the rate of development of new Technology has been lower in developing countries especially those of sub-saharan African source. The Information Communication Technology (ICT) which in involve the use of electronic equipment for storing, analyzing and distribution of Information Communication Technology is gradually replacing storage, analysis distribution and processing among Governmental and non-Government organization while Information Communication Technology also involved the transfer and flow of information circulation of knowledge and ideas in the society by electronic means.
