A human rights advocacy group, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, has urged the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to see the country’s new rating on the Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index as a wake-up call.
The group said rather than dismiss TI’s verdict as a “fiction,” the Federal Government should accept it as a call to “raise its game to fight both grand and petty corruption, as well as end the legacy of impunity” in the country.
The TI had, in its latest Corruption Perception Index, placed Nigeria at number 148 out of 180 countries, stating that corruption in the country had worsened in the last two years when Nigeria ranked 136 on its list.
But the Presidency had dismissed the latest TI’s rating as a fiction.
