Nigeria Moves Up In Corruption Index – TI Ranking

Nigeria improved its Corruption Perception Index (CPI) score on Tuesday, moving up five places to 145th out of 180 countries surveyed.

According to Transparency International’s (TI) most recent corruption index, the country added one point to its previous 24, resulting in 25 out of 100 maximum points in the 2023 CPI results, as well as a five-place increase from 150th.

The CPI, arguably the most extensively used worldwide corruption ranking, assesses the perceived corruption of each country’s public sector.

It employs a zero-to-100 scale, with zero indicating “highly corrupt” and 100 indicating “very clean.”

The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Center (CISLAC), which presented the index in Abuja, stated that Nigeria’s score is lower than the Sub-Saharan African average of 33 points.

While the index does not identify particular occurrences of corruption in the country, it shows the perception of corruption in Nigeria.

CISLAC emphasizes that this year’s CPI release is not an evaluation of Nigeria’s anti-corruption authorities, which it notes are making remarkable contributions to the fight against corruption in Nigeria.
