Nigerians Don’t Trust Their Politicians, Study shows

A new study conducted by the World Economic Forum (WEF) and shared by Spectator Index, confirms what everyone already knows—Nigerians don’t trust their politicians at all.

Of the 137 countries polled during the research, Nigeria is ranked 130 as one of the countries that distrusts its political class the most.

The countries that trust their politicians the most occupy the top places on the log while those who distrust their politicians the most can be found on the lowest rung of the table.

Only Zimbabwe (131), Venezuela (133), Paraguay (134) and Brazil (137) are ranked worse than Nigeria in the “trust in politicians” index.

The countries who trust their politicians the most are Singapore (1), UAE (2), New Zealand (3), Qatar (4), Finland (5) and Norway (6).

Interestingly, the United States and the United Kingdom—often held as the purveyors of modern day democracy across the world—come in on the index at 16 and 17 places respectively.
In Africa, Rwanda (10), Egypt (67) and South Africa (114) are ranked higher than Nigeria.
