The Federal Government has berated Transparency International, TI, for scoring Nigeria low in its 2019 corruption perception index report.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), said there was no evidence to back the report by TI, which placed Nigeria at 146 out of the 180 countries on the 2019 corruption perception index.

In an interview on a TV Programme monitored by Magic FM yesterday, Malami said TI’s report had no bearing on reality.
