Nigeria is ranking 144 out of the 180 countries surveyed last year by the Transparency International, TI,  corruption perception index for 2018.

This is against Nigeria’s 148 position in the year before, 2017.

With the current figure, Nigeria has moved up the ladder by four steps in the report released on Tuesday.

In the statement issued by the Managing Director of Transparency International, TI, Patricia Moreira, the group stressed the effect of corruption across the world.

Her words:  “Corruption chips away at democracy to produce a vicious cycle, where corruption undermines democratic institutions and, in turn, weak institutions are less able to control corruption.”
