TI’s corruption rating call to work harder, says Osinbajo

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday took an optimistic look at the poor rating of Nigeria on the recently-released Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index 2017.

He said in Abuja that the rating was not a setback for Nigeria, but an encouragement for the country to work harder and plug loopholes.

The Transparency International’s report released on February 21, scored Nigeria 27 per cent and ranked it 148th out of the 180 countries assessed.

The organisation said Nigeria’s latest result was worse than that of 2016 wherein the country was ranked 136th with a score of 28 per cent.
