Nigeria Ranks 136th Most Corrupt Country In the World

Transparency International (TI) ranks Nigeria the 136th most corrupt country in the world

Nigeria is at number 136 on the table of recent results in the corruption perception index 2015 as released by Transparency International (TI).

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.

A country or territory’s score indicates the perceived level of public sector corruption on a scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). A country’s rank indicates its position relative to the other countries in the index. This year’s index includes 168 countries and territories. Click on the column headings to sort the results, or use the search to view the results for one country. Note that N/A means a country was not included in the index during a particular year.
