Nigeria has been ranked one hundred and second out of 104 countries captured in the inaugural Chandler Good Government Index which classifies countries in terms of government capabilities and outcomes. This means Nigeria is rated as the third worst-governed nation in the world.

Finland came out as the best-governed nation ahead of Switzerland and Singapore. The only countries behind Nigeria were Zimbabwe and Venezuela, while Mauritius was rated Africa’s best-governed country.

The CGGI list used data from more than 50 publicly available sources, such as the World Trade Organization, United Nations and World Bank.
