Nigeria Ranked 136th Most Corrupt Country In The World

When we were thinking Nigeria will top
the list of the most corrupt countries,
Transparency International has proven
us wrong.

Transparency International (TI) has
ranked Nigeria the 136th most corrupt
country in the world and the 3rd most
corrupt country in West Africa after
Guinea and Guinea Bissau.
In its 2014 Transparency International
Corruption Perception Index released
yesterday, the group said it ranked 174
countries it surveyed based on how
corrupt their public sector is presumed
to be.

The measurement is based on a scale of
0 to 100 with a score of 0 perceived as
“highly corrupt” and 100 “very clean”.
Nigeria was ranked 136th with an index
score of 27.

This record is Nigeria best ranking on
Transparency International’s corruption
perception index (CPI) under President
Goodluck Jonathan.

Nigeria was ranked 144th in 2013,
139th in 2012 and 143rd in 2011 with
the 2014 position bettering that of 2013
by eight places.
