Northwest, Northeast Top Bribery Prevalence Rate In Nigeria- NBS by Realtouchnot: 4:40am On Aug 18, 2017
Nigeria’s Northwest and Northeast regions have the highest prevalence of bribery among adults, a new report published on Wednesday indicates.

The report, prepared by Nigeria’s National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) in partnership with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), with a focus on the quality and integrity of public services in the country, shows that the Northwest has 36.2 per cent prevalence rate while the Northeast has 35.2 per cent prevalence rate.


The prevalence of bribery, according to the report, “is calculated as the number of adult Nigerians who had at least one contact with a public official and who paid a bribe to a public official, or were asked for a bribe by a public official, on at least one occasion in the 12 months prior to the survey, as a percentage of all adult Nigerians who had at least one contact with a public official.”

The country’s Southeast region, currently in the throes of a separatist agitation championed by Nnamdi Kanu’s Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has the lowest bribery prevalence rate of 24.2 per cent, which is below the national average prevalence rate of 32.3 per cent.

In between these extremes are the Southsouth, Southwest and Northwest with corruption prevalence rates of 33.8 percent, 32.8 per cent and 29.1 per cent, respectively.

In terms of an average number of times a bribe is paid in each of the regions, Southeast has 4.9, followed by Northwest with 5.2 and Southwest with 5.7 times – all of which are below the national average of 5.8 occurrence rate. A bribe is paid in an average of 6.2 times in the Northeast, while both the Northcentral and the Southsouth have a 6.4 occurrence rate.

However, the report notes that from the “spatial analysis of bribery prevalence across the 36 states of Nigeria, no clear geographical pattern emerges. At the state level, the prevalence of bribery ranges between 13 per cent in Kwara State and 52 per cent in Borno State, indicating that local factors can have a significant impact on interactions between civil servants and the public.”

Why am i not surprised. Thats why you cant get any of them living abroad where things are by merit or dint of hardwork.

Another national issue youths should discuss how to tackle.
But as long as South East and South West came up on the same sentence,
The bunch of silly no-goods would turn it into a tribal war.
At the end, they lose focus on the topic and wait for National Bureau of Statistics to publish the same thing next year.

And you wonder why 80% percent of them still struggle to make ends meet at the age of forty.

You don't know what you are saying!

Who told you that northerners are not many outside the shores of Nigeria?
You must be one of the people being fed junkz about the northerners.

Many northerners living outside the country are living large and not undergoing the kinda hustling some southerners are undergoing to make ends meet.

This got me thinking!
What could they possibly be doing that's helping them 'live large' without involving in the 'hustling' some southerners undergo to make money?

Most of them aren't really interested in life outside their territories where they won't have their cultural values exhibited and protected.

Northerners are conservative.

Many of them outside Nigeria are there to spend the money or acquire knowledge and come back to their ancestral territory.

This report is a futile academic exercise. Nigerians affinity towards accumulating wealth by uncouth means is same regardless of background. There is smooth combination between a Yoruba Internet fraudster and house bureau De change agent, An Igbo business man importing contraband goods and an Hausa custom boss, A Yoruba Bale and a fraudulent real estate agent and the list continues.

In other words, arewanistan and afonjanistan have d highest rate of bribery prevalence while south east has d lowest.

Is anyone in doubt about this statistical analysis? The hypothesis is as clear as d sky.

The two most corrupt regions killing and doing everything possible to have power, is it bribery they will not do.

Just look at how d cabal are bribing unemployed youth to do counter protests all in d name of power. Are ppl still in doubt about bribery prevalent in these areas?

The nepotism is just clear, they bribe to put their ppl in juicy position rmbr d recent DPR scandal by d clerk of d house of rep, they virtually bribe their way into jobs, positions, appointment, etc Nepotism and bigotry is their food. The truth has spoken
