Nigeria ranked 35th in governance




Nigeria has emerged 35th out of 54 African countries in overall governance ranking, according to a report released today in Dakar, Senegal by The Mo Ibrahim Foundation.

Although the 2017 Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG), says Nigeria has shown significant improvement in governance in the last five years, it scores Nigeria 48.1 out of a possible 100.0, a score lower than the African average of 50.8 and the West African regional average of 53.8.


The 35th ranking is only a notch better than 36th position Nigeria held last year, despite improvements in some areas of governance.

Nigeria achieves its highest category score in Participation & Human Rights (52.5), and its lowest category score in Sustainable Economic Opportunity (42.3).

Nigeria achieves its highest sub-category score in Rule of Law (63.1), and its lowest sub-category score in Accountability (32.7).
