Transparency International ’s corruption rating, call to work harder, says Osinbajo
1 March 2018 National
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says the poor rating of Nigeria on the recently-released Transparency International corruption perceptions index 2017 is not a setback, but an encouragement for the country to work harder and plug loopholes.
The Transparency International’s report released on February 21, scored Nigeria 27 percent and ranked it 148th out of the 180 countries assessed.
But the vice-president said Nigeria’s rating dropped because the country had a low score in “just one out of the nine internationally-recognized indexes” used by the organization.
