Nigeria Ranked 22nd Most Democratic Country In Africa, 108 In The World by tstx(m): 11:42am On Jan 12
Nigeria has been Ranked the 22nd Most Democratic Country in Africa,108 in the World



The country, which was scored 4.62 in 2015 scored a not-so-impressive 4.44 in the recently released 2018 study.

The Democracy Index reviews the state of democracy in 165 independent countries worldwide using five parameters: process and pluralism; civil liberties; the functioning of government; political participation; and political culture.

Based on the performance of the countries in the five categories they are then classified into four regimes namely: full democracy”, “flawed democracy”, “hybrid regime” and “authoritarian regime”.

A full democracy is the best rating while authoritarian regime is rated the worst.

Nigeria, which is Africa’s biggest democracy, was ranked 20 out of the 44 sub-Saharan African countries and 108 in the world.

Nigeria was classified a hybrid regime, meaning it is a combination of democratic traits such as regular elections and autocratic ones, such as political repression.

Nigeria was left limping behind countries such as Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Kenya, mali and Ghana who were ranked 21st, 20th, 18th, 14th and 6th respectively.

In the West African sub-region and among member states of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Nigeria was among the poorest rated, ranking only better above Togo, Guinea, Gabon, Niger, Côte d’Ivoire, and Gambia.

Cape Verde is the highest ranked ECOWAS country ranked second in Sub-Saharan Africa and 26 in the world with a score of 7.88. Ghana, with a score of 6.63 is ranked 6th in Sub-Saharan Africa and Senegal is ranked 8th with a score of 6.15 while neighbouring Benin is ranked a close 9th with a score of 5.74.


Methodology
The EIU Democracy Index provides a snapshot of the state of world democracy for 165 independent states and two territories. The Democracy Index is based on five categories: electoral process and pluralism; civil liberties; the functioning of government; political participation; and political culture. Based on their scores on 60 indicators within these categories, each country is then itself classified as one of four types of regime: full democracy; flawed democracy; hybrid regime; and authoritarian regime.

Today in history: Do you remember the 2012 fuel subsidy removal rally and strike? If you have forgotten, it took place from Jan 6-12, 2012. It got to a peak on Jan 8, 2012. Background fact January 1, 2012, GEJ led FG increased fuel pump price from N65/ltr to N141/ltr so that subsidy can be totally removed! Voila! # OccupyNigeria protests erupted in Lagos and some other cities. NLC, TUC, Save Nigeria Group, civil society organizations, Nollywood celebrities, ACN and opposition Politicians etc took turns to address the rally at Gani Fawehinmi memorial park at Ojora, Lagos to denounced the subsidy removal. The strike paralyzed the country economy for about one week. In the midst of the strike, FG backtracked and reduced the pump price to N97/ltr after series of negotiations with the Labour unions to call off the strike. Fast forward to 2015. PMB led FG said subsidy was a fraud, that there is nothing like subsidy. They promised to fix the refineries, that Nigeria won't import fuel anymore. Has it been done? NO! May 2016, PMB increased pump price from N97/ltr to N145/ ltr, claiming Subsidy has been removed. No rally, no protest, no strike from actors of 2012 strike .....even from Nigerians! # Jazzed ? NASS found out that FG has been paying subsidy unappropriated! Suddenly, the lid broke, FG was paying subsidy , despite claims of its removal! FG claimed it was Nnpc that was paying and not FG NNPC says they are not paying subsidy, but it's "differential", after more pressure from suspecting public, they renamed it "under recovery" . Oil marketers threatened to stop importation of fuel in Dec 2018 if their "subsidy" payment was not paid. FG quietly paid . Guess what, this year, subsidy funds is in the 2019 budget! N1.1trn! .. as they are tired of defending indefensible Question: Why are we not buying fuel at N97/ltr all these while (from 2016) when FG is still paying subsidy? Where are SNG, NLC, TUC, Civil society groups, Nollywood celebrities, eminent participants etc ? Who is occupying Nigeria today?
