This paper explored both primary and secondary data in testing the views of 320 respondents selected randomly from 16 different SMEs in Nigeria towards the level of ICT adoption among SMEs. The study observed that among the four sectors reviewed, SMEs involved in Hotel and Tourism sector of the economy has the highest level of ICT adoption in their operations. The paper identified cost of developing and maintaining e-business, poor network infrastructural development, lack of skilled personnel etc as some of the factors responsible for the low level of ICT adoption in the other sectors. The paper concludes that concerted efforts on the part of the academia in developing an ICT oriented entrepreneurial education and a more pro-active step by government in providing organizational incentives and assistance will be beneficial towards the adoption of ICT among SMEs in Nigeria.
