This study seeks to assess the computer and networking competencies possessed by OTM lecturers in tertiary institutions in Anambra and Enugu states. It adopts the descriptive survey design. Two research questions and two hypotheses tested at 0.05 level of significance were used. Population and sample consisted of 113 OTM lecturers. A validated questionnaire with reliability coefficients of 0.76 and 0.86 was used for data collection. Mean, standard deviation and z-test were used for analysis. Findings showed that the respondents possessed computer operation competencies to a high extent and networking competencies to a low extent. Gender and experience have no significant effect in the respondents mean ratings on their possessed computer operation and networking competencies. The researchers conclude that the respondents can produce graduates with computer operation competencies but need retraining on networking to be able to inculcate the competencies in their students. Based on the findings and conclusion, it is recommended, among others, that government should make a stringent policy regarding the use of ICTs in instructional delivery and that tertiary institutions should package professional development programs for lecturers to upgrade their ICT competencies.
