The World Justice Project (WJP), an international organisation says Nigeria has leaped from 107 to 96 position in a 2016 global rule of law Index ranking.

The WJP said it relied on more than 100,000 household and expert surveys to measure how rule of law is experienced in general public, worldwide.

“Performance is measured using 44 indicators across eight primary rule of law factors, each of which is scored and ranked globally and against regional and income peers: constraints on government powers, absence of corruption, open government, fundamental rights, order and security, regulatory enforcement, civil justice, and criminal justice,” a statement on its website read.

“The WJP Rule of Law Index is the most comprehensive index of its kind and the only to rely solely on primary data.

“The Index’s scores are built from the assessments of local residents (1,000 respondents per country) and local legal experts, ensuring that the findings reflect the conditions experienced by the population, including marginalised sectors of society.

“Sub-Saharan Africa’s top performer is South Africa, surpassing Ghana and Botswana in this year’s rankings and into 43rd place globally. Nigeria and Burkina Faso were the biggest movers among the 18 countries indexed in the region, climbing 11 and 10 spots respectively. In contrast, Botswana lost 6 positions while Kenya and Ethiopia each lost 5 places.”

The global ranking shows that Nigeria closely follows Liberia and Sierra Leone which are both placed at 94 and 95 respectively.
