Perception of corruption worsens in Nigeria – 2017 T.I Reports

According to the latest corruption perception index (CPI) released by Transparency International (TI), corruption is getting worse in Nigeria.

Nigeria ranked 148 out of 180 countries assessed in 2017 on the perception of corruption, the annual Corruption Perception Index, CPI.

The index, published Wednesday, showed that out of 100 points signalling maximum transparency and no corruption, Nigeria scored 27 points. .

The results show a slight deterioration in perception of corruption in public administration in Nigeria compared to 2016.

 In 2016, Nigeria scored 28 points and ranked 136th in the ranking of countries. .

With the one-point reduction in the score, Nigeria slipped in the country-ranking by 12 positions, from 136 in 2016 to 148 in 2017.

 The rankings are from 1 to 180, with 180 indicating the country having the worst perception of corruption. .

It uses a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean, according to TI. The report noted that while the rest of the world has improved in the perception on corruption, Nigeria slips further down as the fight against corruption stagnates. .

Botswana leads the African continent with the record of competent and largely corruption-free public administration.
