Human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), and civil society organisations have explained the poor rating of Nigeria’s anti-graft war by the Transparency International.
The Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership and the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights said Nigeria’s rating by the Transparency International dropped because the Federal Government had not done enough to tackle corruption among its officials in the executive.
Transparency International had ranked Nigeria 148 out of the 180 countries it assessed in 2017 on the annual corruption perception index.
The CACOL Director, Debo Adeniran, in an interview with SUNDAY PUNCH, said the Federal Government should tackle corruption among its officials.
