According to usnews.com, the list of the 10 most corrupt countries were measured based on a survey of more than 16,000 people from four regions. This year 2018, Nigeria surprisingly ranked first on the list.
The reasons giving for ranking Nigeria first on the list is because of the supposed corruption fight that President Buhari is fighting which has seen Nigeria’s former national security adviser, Sambo Dasuki among others facing trial on charges of fraud and money laundering. According to Bloomberg. It is the country’s first high-profile corruption trial since Buhari took office.
Russia, the second most powerful country in the world is perceived as the sixth most corrupt country in the world. The list looked bias as countries either opposed to US policies or the under-developed ones were all included.
