Nigeria has recorded an improvement in the first corruption perception index under the current administration of President Bola Tinubu.
The country was ranked 145 among 180 countries, earning it 25 out of 100 points on the 2023 Corruption Perception Index.
The Executive Director, of Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre, and Transparency International, Auwal Ibrahim Rafsanjani, made this known on Tuesday, at a press conference in Abuja.
According to the Guardian, the ranking is an improvement on the 2022 position where the country scored 150 among 180 countries with 24 out of 100 points on the corruption index.
Rafsanjani explained that CISLAC sourced its data for the ranking from eight globally acclaimed organisations.
This ranking is the first Corruption Perception Index since the inception of Tinubu’s administration on May 29, 2023.
However, Rafsanjani decried electoral and judicial corruption, adding that despite the amendment of the Electoral Act, the 2023 election fell short of the expectations of Nigerians.
