After a small improvement, corruption is back in full force in Nigeria under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari. In a damning report released on Thursday, Transparency International (TI) made it crystal clear corruption under President Muhammadu Buhari had metastasized with a failed score of only 26 over 100.

After a period of false claims and manipulations, the latest catastrophic assessment, shows the retired Major-General who promised to fight corruption tooth and nail and “kill it before it kills Nigeria” was not doing a very good job even in his second and last term in office.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, only very few countries are more corrupt than Nigeria, including Cameroon with also a catastrophic score of 25 over 100, Somalia 9 over 100, South Sudan 12 over 100, Sudan 16 over 100, and Equatorial Guinea 16 over 100.

Nigeria ranks 146 out of 180 countries surveyed, meaning 145 countries are less corrupt than Nigeria.

Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, South Sudan and Cameroon are beneficiaries of petrodollars, and TI said there seems to be a correlation between big money and big corruption.

But there is some glimmer of hope on the continent. With a score of 66, the Seychelles earns the highest mark in the region, followed by Botswana (61), Cabo Verde (58), Rwanda (53) and Mauritius (52).
