The adoption of electronic government (or e-government) by any country is a direct implication that the majority of its citizens; if not all must possess high level of computer literacy. This paper therefore investigates the computer literacy levels of primary school teachers in Bida with a view to find out their degree of acceptance of e-governance as a system. The study uses descriptive survey of a hundred (100) teachers who were randomly selected from 10 schools in Bida as respondents. The research instrument used was a self-reporting questionnaire titled: Teachers Computer Literacy Questionnaire (TCLQ) with internal consistency of 0. 65. The result, which was presented using group percentages and bar-charts, shows that there is high level of computer literacy among the teachers as well as revealing highest percentage of respondents with positive feelings for e-products - a factor of acceptance of e-governance.
