Written by Adewale Adeyemi on January 31, 2023
Nigeria has fallen by four places on the latest Corruption Perception Index, CPI, ranking released by Transparency International, on Tuesday. Although in the 2022 ranking, Nigeria scored 24 out of 100 points, it fell from 150th to 154th out of 180 countries assessed in the 2022 ranking.
The Corruption Perception Index is Transparency International’s tool for measuring the levels of corruption in the systems of various countries around the world.
The latest ranking may indicate that President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption has yet to yield enough results.
The Transparency International Chair, Delia Rubio, said governments worldwide have failed to progress against corruption. Rubio called for all governments to work for all people, not just an elite few.
