Somalia, Myanmar and Afghanistan have been labelled the most corrupt countries in the world in this year’s report compiled by Transparency International.
Nigeria was 20 spots away from being the most corrupt country in the world= a huge leap away from previous rankings nevertheless it was a far cry from number one spot with New Zealand.
The report revealed that despite the continued lack of transparency within Britain, the UK Bribery Act has marginally improved the nation’s international rating. New Zealand was listed as the least corrupt nation while Italy remained poorly placed at 69th, below Ghana, Rwanda and Oman. Transparency International ranks the countries on their perceived levels of corruption within the public sector.
