Amadin F. I, Egwuatu J. O & Obienu A. C.

ABSTRACT
The research focus on Internet of things (IoT) innovations as it applies to the needs identified in the nation Nigeria and towards
the upliftment of the living standards of the people. IoT is a new innovation that is gaining wide awareness and acceptance in
several fields due to its practical relevance in everyday life improvement. However, its impact is not conspicuously evident in
Nigeria. This might be probably traced to low level of awareness, illiteracy, poverty, insufficiency or lack of facilitating
condition. In a bid to enhance public knowledge and acceptance of IoT, a survey was carried out to ascertain people’s perception
on IoT as regards to envisaged economic, social and ethical effects it will have on Nigeria society. Findings reveal that IoT will
be highly accepted and appreciated when fully adopted in Nigeria. Based on the findings, Approaches on how to improve the
level of awareness and adoption were recommended.
