Claims of massive corruption loom over Nigeria's 2015 general election, with the central bank's former head saying £20bn was syphoned off national oil revenues, allegedly under the watch of President Goodluck Jonathan. Nigeria is ranked 136th out of 172 countries on the corruption perceptions index published by Transparency International. Read the Nigerian country profile here.
