Again, Nigeria drops in corruption ranking

Again, Nigeria drops in corruption ranking

On the most recent Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index (CPI) ranking, Nigeria has once more dropped four spots.

Nigeria received 24 out of 100 points in the 2022 rating, however it dropped from 150th to 154th place out of the 180 nations evaluated.

The CPI is TI’s method for assessing the extent of corruption in various national systems around the globe. The least possible score for a nation is zero, and the most is 100. 100 represents the best-performing government, and zero represents the worst.

According to the most recent ranking, President Muhammadu Buhari’s war against corruption may not have produced enough progress.

Many consider the Buhari administration’s pardon granted to two jailed former governors – Joshua Dariye of Plateau State and Jolly Nyame of Taraba State – in 2022 as a significant setback in the country’s anti-corruption efforts.

As the two former governors were pardoned in April 2022, the Supreme Court affirmed their convictions and sentencing, and they had yet to serve half the length of their jail time.

Also, corruption has continued to permeate the public and private sectors despite the government’s efforts to deter the menace.

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.

“Corruption has made our world a more dangerous place. As governments have collectively failed to progress against it, they fuel the current rise in violence and conflict – and endanger people everywhere. The only way out is for states to do the hard work, rooting out corruption at all levels to ensure governments work for all people, not just an elite few”, Rubio stated.
