E-governance is an evolution method of governance which advocates for better governments that are participative, transparent and all-inclusive. These models of digital governments are still evolving in the developing countries. E-governance is based on intrinsic characteristics of ICT like enabling similar access to data for everyone who is a part and parcel of the digital network platform and connecting all sources of information across the entire digital network domain. In e-governance, information is not retained in a particular node but flows uniformly to all the nodes in the entire network [2]. E-governance does not implant the ordinary procedure of data flow that enhances the uneven flow of information and therefore distorted power control in the government. E-Governance as I have said is an evolutional move for better governments which are efficient, in the implementation of some new trends in governance models. However, E-Governance is not implemented well yet since there are several barriers to its full implementation. In fact, this method of governance has not yet been learned by many people as compared to eLearning and eCommerce. Unlike this two, common e-technology, e-governance needs to be practical. One major difference between e-governance to eLearning and eCommerce is that e-Governance entails knowledge management whereas the duo involves information management. Expounding more on this, knowledge management is the administration of skills, information, intelligence, experience and innovation [3]. An e-Government founded on knowledge management system, is created upon the following pillars;

Knowledge capturing

Knowledge allotment

Knowledge enhancing

Knowledge conservation
