Transparency and Integrity Index 2022

The Transparency and Integrity Index (TII) Assessment Methodology for 2022 is a comprehensive guide for all Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), States and Local governments on how to ensure compliance with the relevant guiding principles which form the bedrock of the research.

Like the previous year, the 2022 evaluation is backed by international and local guiding principles. Locally, our guiding principles include the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended); Public Procurement Act, 2007(as amended); the Freedom of Information Act, 2011; Fiscal Responsibility Act, 2007; Federal Character Principles; States Fiscal Transparency, Accountability and Sustainability; Framework and Guidelines for the Use of Social Media Platform in Public Institutions, 2019 and the Discriminations Against Persons with Disabilities (Prohibition) Act, 2018.

Internationally, we adopted guiding principles such as the United Nations Convention Against Corruption, 2004; Open Government Partnership; African Union Convention on Preventing and Combatting Corruption, 2006; Protocol to the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa; the Sustainable Development Goal 10 and 16; Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The TII methodology has been duly evaluated and validated by the Professional Statistician Society of Nigeria (PSSN) and Nigerian Statistical Association (NSA).
