Three aspects of the program (e-government) were identified viz. openness, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness.The methodology of this research is quantitative research based on a survey method using questionnaire as a data collection technique. The findings showed that age, gender and ethnic background all affect the satisfaction and adoption of e-government in Nigeria.
