The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says its Acting Chairman, Mr Ibrahim Magu, has been endorsed by 25 countries around the world for his never-ending fight against corruption.
The Spokesman of the commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, said this in a statement on Friday.
Uwujaren said the endorsement was the result of an opinion poll conducted by UK-based Global Peace Movement International.
The poll came a week after Transparency International (TI) released its latest transparency index, he said.
According to him, Nigeria for the first time in over a decade, moved up in the global anti-corruption and transparency ranking.
He said that analysts had attributed the improvement to the efforts of the EFCC under Magu.
“According to the report by Transparency International, the corruption perception index ranked 176 countries on a scale of 0 (perceived to be corrupt) to 100 (perceived to be clean).
“In the report, Somalia was ranked the most corrupt country in the world for the tenth straight year,” the spokesman said.
