Buhari govt records another poor ranking in corruption

Must read

Nigeria has again gone down four places on the latest Corruption Perception Index, CPI, ranking released by Transparency International, TI.

In the ranking released on Tuesday, the country fell from 150th to 154th out of 180 countries assessed in the 2022 ranking.

The Corruption perception index is TI’s tool for measuring the levels of corruption in the systems of various countries around the world.

The latest ranking shows that President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption has not achieved a lot yet.

Recall that the Buhari administration had pardoned two jailed former governors – Joshua Dariye of Plateau State and Jolly Nyame of Taraba State – in 2022 as a significant setback in the country’s anti-corruption efforts.

Many believe there is corruption in high places in government, especially towards the end of this administration.

Transparency International Chair, Delia Rubio, said governments worldwide have failed to progress against corruption.

Rubio called for all governments to work for all people, not just an elite few.

“Corruption has made our world a more dangerous place. As governments have collectively failed to progress against it, they fuel the current rise in violence and conflict – and endanger people everywhere. The only way out is for states to do the hard work, rooting out corruption at all levels to ensure governments work for all people, not just an elite few”, Rubio stated.
