May 21, 2014 – Nigerian Government Ranked Worst In The World For Corruption, Poverty & Terror

The Jos bombings of Tuesday, May 20th, 2014 which claimed more than 200 lives according to latest counts, have pushed Nigeria to formally occupy the first position in the ranking of world nations with the worst governments in history.

Other criteria which recently moved Nigeria up the list include:

Corruption: With Nigeria’s leadership admitting that they could not account for up to or more than $20 billion dollars oil revenue earnings discovered missing in a single 18 month period examined; the nation’s finance minister admitting this to BBC and the official government engagement of Pricewater house international firm further confirming this financial mishap, Nigeria secured its position as the most haplessly corrupt nation in the post world war history of the world.

Poverty: The rebasing of Nigeria’s economy, setting Nigeria as the largest economy in Africa, while revealing the true economic position of Africa’s largest nation, simultaneously recertified Nigeria as the nation in the top position for worst leadership in social welfare and opportunities for the people. With 70% of the nation living under a-dollar-a-day, economically factored, Nigeria has the poorest people of any nation in the world today. With the rebased economy rating, Nigeria has the most unparalleled HDI (Human Development Index) to revenue and economy ratio of all nations. Poorest people in the Nigeria case, is derived from or correlates with poorest leadership.

Pollution: Despite new technologies of oil exploration, like fracking, pushing some ‘developed’ nations further down the chart due to increasing confirmed cases of drilling-related health hazards, Nigeria has secured its position as having the most polluted shore-line in the world, thanks to serial worst administrations. Gas flaring continues in Nigeria till date. Bayelsa state which currently reports 40 oil spills per month established itself as the most polluted piece of land on the earth in post world war history, approximating Hiroshima and Nagasaki and more recently Fukushima, in proportion of catastrophe. Nigeria ties with Japan as the two nations with the greatest levels of ecological pollution, though in terms of leadership attribution, Nigeria maintained the top spot.

Terror: Nigeria in 2014 reported the most dangerous events of high sea piracy in the world. Nigeria in the end of 2013 and 2014 surpassed Mexico in kidnapping, recording the cruelest and second highest single abduction event in recent history. In the end of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014, Nigeria surpassed Syria, Libya, Iraq and Central African Republic, CAR in worst and most deadly acts of terrorism and sectarian violence. The Nyanya bombing was ranked the fifth worst bombing of its kind in world history post 1970 by the Mineta Transportation Institute (MTI). The Jos bombing with over 200 reported dead in one attack, is second only to 9/11 and the disputed Syria chemical weapons attack. In combined values, with between 40-80,000 killed in the four years of largely unchecked Boko Haram violence, with over 4000 killed in the first quarter of 2014 alone, Nigeria has fast outpaced the world in deadly terror. Nigeria’s leadership in December of 2013 secured the world top position in insecurity and failure to protect life and discourage terror. Current rankings put Nigeria’s leadership second only to Hitler after surpassing Saddam Hussein, in the current century in terms of deliberate and government supervised internal wastage of life.

      You need to read with understanding! All the nations you mentioned do not have the resources that Nigeria has so your point is not relevant in this case. Dr Brimah is not the enemy of government as you had written. You are the enemy of the people because you fail to see what the government is doing to the people and the great country, Nigeria. By the way, Muslim does not mean terror but the Muslim extremists!!!

    Who’ll salvage us? The wealthiest and the most poverty stricken. It all began from the military regime, then inflicted upon the civilian leaders. Even the so called *from prison to leader personality*

    Enemy of Naija, please leave Nigeria alone! Let’s tear the country into three equal parts and watch the outcome. The long awaited solution, love and unity might come from so doing.

    If the truth been said the FG is not doing anything to shelter the populations, we are a fail country, everybody has failed, from our leaders to the ordinary once has failed, I was failed to do what I suppose to do.
    I realize the truth is bitter to be swallowing, but we are a fail country.
    I used to ask myself what was the inspiration of BIAFRAN war that lead many people to lose their soul but Is now that I got the answer. Ok see Nigeria is the world worst in everything awful things, what a nation? Is Nigerian has a future?
    Why did I said that all of us has failed, I have been in so many countries, It is only in Nigeria that you will see a Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, Fulani either a Muslim or Christian do not love his fellow country man, even an Igbo man don’t love his fellow Igbo man, for you to be A president is better an imbecile be there is our problem.
    We must change our MENTALITY because it is very low including the president first because he is afraid and scary such person need not to be a president, I knew people that his leadership is favoring will disagreed me, I am not living in Nigeria with my family but I am embarrassed to assumed that I am a Nigeria because this BH.
    This is the only nation that a bandit is proud to be a leader after all what matters is the wealth this is most of our problems everybody want to use private jets.
    No act, only talking, talk alone will not fetch our abducted Sisters back.
    God please help our nation and received our prayers in JESUS NAME AMEN

    A true summary of Nigeria. True account of the system. And the rightful position in the World ranking. In-fact when I watch GLJ talking, I rate him quiet below a primary sch pupil in everything. Investigate his PhD I don’t think he merits it. Nigeria is the worse Nation on earth. From a flourishing trade in Human Parts, baby manufacturing for sales, Kidnapping for Ransoms,armed robbery attacks, to Terrorism. There is no place on earth even closer. GLJ is the worse leadership God ever created.
    Besides, The Northerners in Nigeria and the real enemies of the Land.Take a look at the Leadership of Nigeria. Apart from the President who is from the South. The rest of the high profile people in Nigeria from Senate president to security advisers all come from the North. since Independence Nigeria has been led by about 8 presidents. of which on Two have come from the South. OB and GLJ. 90% of the oil wells in Nigeria are controlled by Northerners. although the oil is found in the South East. The richest man in Africa Northerner
    Yet Poverty and backwardness is the future in the North. So In Nigeria, the Northerners are a cancer. Their ambition to hold Nigeria hostage from power to economy and all the wealth is the fundamental reason why Nigeria has sang into anarchy. GLJ lacks every fragment of President in this volatile country. Simply cut off the North, and there will be and ease peace in Nigeria.

    @saphire. During the early days of lslam, Muslims lived peacefully with jews and christians despite their attempts to terminate lslam. There is no compulsion in lslam. If ALLAH willed He would have made the human race of one religion. You’re one of anti-lslamic peoples that are sowing seeds of rancour, bitterness,war and terrorism in the lslam world. ISLAM IS PEACE, PEACE IS ISLAM!

    bramah is anti-GEJ administration, i will say that my country Nigeria is not the most poorest and corrupt country.How many of you are doing what the BIBLE /QUARAN says. most of us this country are corrupt individually. a mann cheating on his wife is a corrupt person likewise a woman cheating on her Husband. we hate truth but love criticism. how many of you pay your Tax or even pay your utility bil accordingly? The Government said whosoever that kill must be killed and the law is still effective as am talking but we have stuborn people who will violate the law even at the detriment of their life. is it the govt that caused this violation?.
    We should stop putting blame on the president and find ways of supporting Him and his cabinets to fight Terrorist, corruption and other cancerous diseases in our Economy.

    i have been waiting for this rating for a long time. At least we are good at something. y do nigerians love self-denial? some are still claiming that nigerians are not poor. the real definition of poverty is Nigeria where the resources are bountiful yet the owners cant afford to eat. I support your comment for the first time because you made sense@mugabe..

    @ Rethink…i have some Qur’an chapters to support my claim…i assumed u are a good muslim and u must have original Qur’an… Please open Surah Al baqarah chapter 2 vs says “and kill them whereever u find them” again open.. At-Taubah chapter 9 vs 9..and i quote ” fight against those who believe not in allah” .. What abt Surah An-nisa 4 vs says ” for the unblievers are unto you open enemies”…. I can go on ans on..but let me stop here for now….. So be the judge..if islam is for peace or for wae……

    @saphire. You have now blantantly confirmed your anti-lslamism. These your quotes refer to the early days of lslam when the enemies of lslam were collaborativelly waging wars against lslam when the muslims were trying to establish peace with them. You need to go and read history of lslam, the whole Quran and its tafsir(detailed explanation) with total concentration and digestion perhaps Allah may shower His mercy on you and guide you to the straight path. That time, they(muslims) too were also commanded to defend themselves by the revelations you quoted.

    @ Rethink…i will rather die than to allow allah to guide my path…allowing allah guiding my path means i will start doing what allah instructs all muslims to do in Surah Al-baqarah chapter 2 vs says ” holy fighting is ordained for all mushims”…that will authomatically turn me terrorist…so pliz let allah no guide my path…ai stll love as peaceful as i am…..PEACE BE UNTO YOU
