We will talk more on this matter after the election. No politics without money in Nigeria, those who refused to bribe are thrown out. Though the Western world claim to fight corruption, it is their country the our stolen wealth is stashed and hidden. They are only here for their interest which is Oil. Once the oil dries up, no body will remember Nigeria.

Lets not be distracted with the whole rating business because that is not what the article is about. It is sections of the article, quoted below, that highlights how corruption is unchecked in Nigeria today, that should worry all Nigerians who feel that the drastic reduction of corruption is the only way forward for Nigeria. We must all worry when funds meant to develop Nigeria is deployed selfishly due to corruption. That is what has always happened in our history and that is why we have remained underdeveloped despite vast potentials and natural endowment.
Government sources confirmed that President Goodluck Jonathan had been inundated with reports of increasing wave of corruption in Nigeria during his recent meetings with officials of the UK, Canada, France and the USA governments.
The document noted that the Nigerian president had been inundated with reports of illegal movements of resources from that country through the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
covert investigations by the different embassies had revealed a lukewarm attitude to corruption in Nigeria in the last two years.
The situation in Nigeria is such that too much of what is called free money is allowed in the system. A number of officials corner the public till and use it for whatever they like,” one of the reports indicated.

Right now, I would even leave EFCC out of it. How about the Nigerian Police? With the kind of criminality that goes on among those who should catch criminals, how can we expect good elections?
I am trying to be hopeful. But if urgent steps are not taken, the elections will go as usual, meaning the people will vote and those with money and power will win.

Newsweek: Ghana 3rd best country to live in sub Saharan Africa
Ghana is the third best Sub-Saharan African country to live in terms of education, health, quality of life, economic competitiveness, and political environment, a Newsweek magazine ranking has said.
According to the magazine's first-ever Best Countries special issue, Ghana ranked 86th of 100 countries worldwide; 7th best in Africa, 3rd best in Sub-Saharan African and best in West Africa.
In an article entitled "The Best Countries in the World", Ghana was sandwiched between Algeria and Kenya, scoring 89th in health, 84th in quality of life, and 87th in economic dynamism, 92nd in education and a respectable 44th in political environment. Though Ghana may not have a stellar economy, its political environment is ranked the best among low-income countries like India
At position 67, Tunisia is the leading African country followed by Morocco, Egypt, Botswana, South Africa, Algeria and Ghana, in that order.
On the brink of its 50-year anniversary of independence, Nigeria was ranked 99th. Other African countries that featured in the list include Madagascar, Senegal, Mozambique, Zambia, Cameroon (#98) and Burkina Faso (#100) in that order.
The top 10 countries are Finland, Switzerland, Sweden, Australia, Luxembourg, Norway, Canada, Netherlands, Japan, and Denmark. The USA is ranked 11th and Germany, which is Europe's largest economy is ranked 12th.
In its editorial Newsweek stated: "The list shows the best countries tend to be small, rich and safe. It also shows there are many plenty of ways to look at it."
Although no African country made it to the top ten, the continent can take solace that its countries appeared alongside the best in the world.
The top 25 from Newsweek’s ranking of the “best” 100 countries
11) United States
13) New Zealand
14) United Kingdom
15) South Korea
25) Czech Republic
Bottom three: Cameroon at #98, Nigeria at #99 and Burkina Faso at #100.

We must vote to end corruption in Nigeria. Say no to rigging.
Meanwhile, there is this cool website (www.reclaimnaija.net) that allows for citizen's reporting of electoral happenings. This way, Nigerian citizens can monitor the elections from their own polling zones.
