MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND CULTURE, LAI MOHAMMED BLAMES LOW RANKING BY TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL ON GAPS IN PROVISION AND ANALYSES OF DATA
Written by wave FM on March 25, 2021
Minister of Information and Culture, LAI MOHAMMED, says Nigeria’s low rating on the Transparency International (TI) corruption perception index is due to certain gaps in the provision and analyses of data between the country and the anti-corruption agency.
Briefing newsmen after the Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by President MUHAMMADU BUHARI, the minister said the government looked into the ratings and made certain discoveries that show why the low rating has continued.
The spokesman further revealed that the government found it strange that the country’s rating has remained the same for a period of 10years.
He however noted that the authorities are taking remedial measures so they can get the data in respect of those sectors.
