ROLE OF ICT FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT IN NIGERIAAbstract:
A large proportion of young graduates in most African countries exist without clear job prospects. Self-employment may be one potential answer to this issue. On the other side, such an approach necessitates the production of entrepreneurship skills. ICT should be seen as an ideal tool to accelerate the development process of Nigeria’s entrepreneurship programs. This article attempted to address the roles of ICT in an Entrepreneurship Development in Nigeria's entrepreneurial growth. It has also been discovered that restricting factors such as regular power loss, shortage of skilled technicians/repairers, availability of insurance, emergencies, and uncertainty are barriers that any potential entrepreneur will overcome. Among other issues, the article suggests that the government subsidizes these ICT resources imports to minimize the expense of such tools to enable them to remain in business and the government should be health insurance for these ICT businesspersons in the event of injuries, fraud and natural catastrophe.
