Nigeria Makes Slight Progress in Corruption Index, But Challenges Remain



Nigeria recorded a modest improvement in Transparency International’s 2023 Corruption Perception Index (CPI), moving up five places from 150th to 145th out of 180 countries assessed. However, the news comes with caveats, highlighting the persistence of corruption challenges in the country.

Arguably the most widely used global corruption ranking in the world, the CPI measures how corrupt each country’s public sector is perceived to be.

It uses a scale of zero to 100, where zero means “highly corrupt” and 100 means very clean”.

While the upward movement might seem encouraging, the score itself remains low, with Nigeria still landing in the “highly corrupt” category. This suggests that, despite the improvement, the perception of corruption in Nigeria remains significant.
