The data for the study were gathered using the convenience and purposive sampling technique through a well structured questionnaire. The study strengthens the empirical knowledge on the usage level of ICT system and software among MSEs and likewise establishes that competitive pressure, government support, employer’s skill and knowledge influence the adoption of ICT by MSEs in the Nigeria.
