Call for Papers

3rd Covenant University Conference on E-Governance in Nigeria (CUCEN2016)

Theme: Information and Communication Technologies for Governance in Nigeria: Achievements, Challenges and Opportunities


In recent years, Nigeria has responded to the global imperative to integrate information and communication technologies (ICTs) in administrative and political processes through a variety of strategies. These included the development of an e-government framework in 2015 by the Federal Ministry of Communication Technology in collaboration with its agencies and industry stakeholders. Accordingly, federal ministries, departments and agencies have begun the automation of their administrative processes especially in the areas of budgeting, approvals and procurements. Also, states such as Lagos and Edo, have been at the vanguard of ICT utilization and digitization of their administrative activities. Overall, many successes have been recorded particularly in the last two years. Despite these positive developments however, Nigeria continues to trail in many indicators of e-government practice and readiness. For instance, in the United Nations E-Government Survey for 2014, the country ranked 19 out of top 20 African countries, and 144 globally (out of 193 countries). Though this was an improvement in Nigeria’s ranking (up by 21) between the 2014 and 2012 surveys, the picture remains dismal.

The Third Covenant University Conference on E-Governance in Nigeria (CUCEN 2016) provides a veritable platform to address these issues from both the academic/theoretical and policy/practice dimensions. The theme for the conference is also broad enough to facilitate a holistic exploration from a multiplicity of backgrounds: We therefore invite research that highlights areas of successes, examines constraining factors and challenges, and explains opportunities for Nigeria in a comprehensive deployment of ICTs in governance at all sectors. We particularly encourage academics, policymakers, ICT practitioners, civil society actors and every citizen who has ever engaged with government functionaries at any level and for any reason to submit papers to conference.

The Covenant University Conference on E-Governance in Nigeria, which holds every second week of June, debuted in 2014 with a focus on the role of ICTs in advancing civil engagement and political participation. This theme was amplified in the wildly acclaimed 2015 edition of the conference, which followed quickly on the heels of the 2015 presidential and governorship elections in Nigeria. The elections were notable for the integration of technologies in the voting processes. Indeed, it could be argued that the outcomes of the elections were mostly a factor of the role of technologies, namely biometrics-enabled voter’s card and the electronic card readers.

While the discussion of the role of technologies in Nigeria 2015 remains relevant, our conception of e-governance/e-government is broad enough to cover every aspect of ICT integration in all areas of administrative practices including activities in the private sector and civil society. For CUCEN 2016, we are therefore inviting papers and panels that address the broad theme of ICT integration in all sectoral activities in the country. Emphasis will be given to presentations emerging from primary research and case studies of ICT integration in different aspects of the Nigerian society, policy papers, and theoretical and methodological contributions to our understanding of the development and adoption of e-governance/e-government in Nigeria.
