NIGERIA RANKED MOST CORRUPT COUNTRY

NIGERIA RANKED MOST CORRUPT COUNTRY

Based on perception, Nigeria has been ranked the most corrupt country among 60 countries evaluated.

The evaluation according to data from the 2016 Best Countries Rankings was based on a survey of more than 16,000 people from four regions.

The other African countries in the ranking that was based on perception are Algeria and Egypt, and the two North Africans occupy 7th and 8th respectively.

In the survey, respondents answered how closely they related each of the 60 countries to the term “corrupt.” Respondents were given no further specifications of the term, so interpretation of the word “corrupt” was left to survey respondents.

Russia is seen as the sixth most corrupt while Colombia- a country synonymous with illegal drug kingpins like Pablo Escobar – gives Nigeria a run for its money as the second most corrupt country, based on perception.
