War Against Corruption:President Buhari Disapproves the Nigeria Rating by the TI

Transparency International (TI) is an organization established in Berlin in the year 1993 and its primary aim is to unveil corruption and lower its deleterious global side effects.

Latest news reports have indicated that the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari,has officially refuted the new low rating by Transparency International (TI) in respect of Nigeria war against corruption.

The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) has reportedly indicted the present government of President Buhari for not being transparent convincingly in its fight against corruption.

In reacting to the development, Alhaji Lai Mohammed,Minister of Information and Culture, on Wednesday, disclosed in a statement that the rating was obviously flawed statistically.

Lai informed news reporters at the end of the Federal Executive Council(FEC) meeting, that TI has been making use of erroneous indicators to evaluate the country on corruption in the last decade.

The Minister retorted that TI failed to use available statistics on the Federal Government various strategies that focused at ensuring that the corruption fight become fruitful.

Meanwhile, despite the current TI rating, the Minister was still of the expectation that the end results of the many amendments and efforts, being deplored by the federal government to fight corruption, will soon start to come up positively in the subsequent international rating of the country.
