Nigeria has dropped two places in the latest ranking on the annual corruption perception index published by Transparency International.
In the 2018 report, Nigeria ranked 144 out of 180 countries surveyed by the organisation. Nigeria is now ranked 146 out of the 180 countries considered in the recently released report.
Nigeria also scored 27 out of 100 points in the 2018 CPI, maintaining the same score as in the 2017 CPI, the same as it did in 2018. The score is below the global average of 43.
This is coming at a time when the current Muhammadu Buhari led administration has reiterated its desire to fight corruption head-on.
