Nigeria has moved four steps from 148th to 144th in the Transparency International latest corruption perception index.
While still maintaining a score of 27 in 2017, Nigeria now sits on number 144 above neighbouring Cameroon ranked 152nd.
Nigeria alongside Kenya, Comoros, Guatemala and Mauritania all share same spot on the ranking.
Top from the African continent on the Transparency International Index is Botswana at 34 on the ranking, followed by Namibia, Mauritius and Senegal.
Somalia, Syria and South Sudan remained at the bottom, with scores of 10, 13 and 13, TI said.
Meanwhile, the United States slid to 22nd in the world from 18th last year, with reasons not unconnected to the Donald Trump’s style of government.
