The index, which ranks 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption in the opinion of experts and business people, uses a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean, according to TI.

This development will worry the Buhari administration which touts effective anti-corruption crusade as one of its major achievements.
