Most glaring problem is the lack of incentives for the indigenous entrepreneurs. The Singaporean economic revolution was based on tax-free setups and contracted quotas for businesses on the areas they are based in. This is not present in the Nigerian setting and is holding us back.

Some of the problems I think ICT face in Nigeria are:
1. High Cost of Establishment
ICT does not only include mobile phones, television, softwares, hardwares nor telephones. It extends to the very complicated ones like robots, networks like our telecoms, drones etc. the cost of setting up any of these is high.
Taking a telecommunication company (e.g. MTN, Airtel, Glo etc) into consideration, you will find out that these companies have branches and mast scattered everywhere in the country. That’s no little amount of money.
Many other Nigerians may have the idea and passion of doing same or even better but due to the cost of establishment, they just wave off their plans and look for something else within their reach.

2. Lack of Skilled Labour
Although Nigeria is recording an improvement in the level of computer literacy, which is majorly due to the injection of computer studies into school’s curriculum and the admittance of children into computer training institutes by parents. These still hasn’t made up for the inadequacy in computer-skilled labors.
The complex and more advanced part of ICT such as the robotics has no existence in Nigeria, partly due to the absence of such course and necessary facilities in our institutions.
Some are privileged enough to travel outside the country to acquire the needed skills while some companies see to it, that their staffs are well vested in ICT themselves.

3. Unreliable Power Supply
For the Nigerian ICT sector to witness progress not only in application but also in invention and development, power supply must be stable. It is heartbreaking that Nigeria still battles the problem of epileptic power supply up till now.
The various Telecomms mast scattered all over the countries are powered by heavy duty diesel generators which is not supposed to be so. These add to the cost of the company’s maintenance.

4. Adverse Effect on Health:
Adverse effect of ICT to health can be in any of the following way: poor sleeping habit, obesity, depression, eye pains, neck and head pain, social media addiction, loss of hearing due to frequent use of earpiece, loss of eyesight etc.
Due to mobile phones, people now exhibit poor sleeping habit, some would stay up all night chatting online while some watch movies all night. This adjust their sleeping habit in a wrong way.

5. Fosters Kidnapping and Deceit
In the quest of meeting up with people they encountered on social media, people get kidnapped while some get deceived and duped.

6. Environmental Pollution
Mobile phone cases and computer cases are non-biodegradable, their accumulation in the ground causes land pollution.
