Nigeria has been ranked the third worst country in the global good governance index, a report put together by Chandler Institute of Governance, a non-profit organisation.
This is contained in the inaugural Chandler Good Government Index.
Financial Street gathered that the indices used that rated Nigeria very low include leadership and foresight; strong institutions; financial stewardship; global influence and reputation; and helping people rise.
Nigeria scored 0.319 points to emerge 102 out of 104 countries on the index table. Zimbabwe and Venezuela followed suit at 103 and 104 positions respectively, on the list that measured 104 governments’ effectiveness and capabilities in about 90 per cent of the world’s population.
Finland comes first with 0.848 points followed by Switzerland, Singapore, Netherlands, Denmark and Norway.Mauritius is Africa’s best performer at number 38 on the log with an index score of 0.567, followed by Rwanda and Botswana at number 53 and 57, respectively.
“The governance competition is the most important contest in the world today; it is the deciding factor on whether nations prosper,” Richard Chandler, founder of the organisation, said.
