Nigeria has seen an improvement in its Corruption Perception Index (CPI), climbing five positions to secure the 145th spot out of 180 assessed countries. Transparency International’s latest report reveals a one-point increase, raising Nigeria’s score from 24 to 25 in the 2023 CPI results.
Although the country moved up from its previous 150th position, it still falls below the sub-Saharan African average of 33 points. The CPI measures the perceived corruption in a country’s public sector on a scale from zero to 100, where zero indicates high corruption, and 100 signifies a very clean environment.
The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Center (CISLAC) emphasized that this assessment doesn’t specifically target Nigeria’s anti-corruption agencies but acknowledges their commendable efforts in the fight against corruption.
