Ghana Listed As The 69th Least Corrupted Country In the World, Better Than Italy…Nigeria Ranked 143

2 min


Transparency International has always been worried about the entrenched corruption around the world. This year, there is even more reason for all of us to be worried as  two thirds of countries covered by the 2011  index were given scores less than 5 – which means they are considered significantly corrupt…

On 2011’s list of corrupted countries in the world,  New Zealand was socred to be the least corrupted nation in the world. The most corrupted in the world today is North Korea. (I am not shocked at North Korea’s placement, I heard only 2 people have mobile phones in that country and the is the prime minister and his wife…LOL).

Ghana has been ranked at 69, ahead of even Italy…So we are less corrupted than Italy right? And oh, Nigeria is at 143…Awuradei, corruption don kill these people finish!
