Nigerians believe Corruption went up under Jonathan's presidency: BPSR/NBS Survey.

A survey conducted by the agencies of the Bureau of Public Service Reforms and National Bureau of Statistics has been released. The comprehensive survey titled PERCEPTION SURVEY ON PUBLIC SERVICE REFORMS IN NIGERIA 2014  - (Households): NBS/BPSR COLLABORATION was aimed at providing information on the attitude of the general public and public servants on the changes and reforms in different areas of the Nigerian public service. The survey covered all thirty-six (36) states of the Federation including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja; both urban and rural enumeration areas (EAs) were canvassed. In addition, some employees in selected MDAs and Parastatals in the states and FCT, Abuja were interviewed for the survey. Adults aged 18 years and above were the target population at the household level. Also, some private establishments were covered in all thirty-six states of the Federation and Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, to understand how the reform programs affected their operations.
Of particular interest is the perception on Anti-Corruption. Findings show that 96.0 percent of Nigerians are aware of the existence of corruption in Nigeria. About 3.0 percent believed non-existence of corruption while the rest cannot actually tell if there is corruption in the land.

Among the five anti-corruption agencies in Nigeria, a greater percentage of people, that is 95.7 percent, are aware of the police as an anti-corruption agency than any other government agency. The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) was the second highest with 72.1 percent. About 53.4 percent of Nigerians are aware of the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) as anti- corruption agency.
