"Companies would not only set themselves apart from their peers, but also contribute to improving the climate for doing business in Nigeria.”

According to NSE and CBI, the Germany-based  HUMBOLDT-VIADRINA School of Governance reviewed and supported the establishment of Corporate Governance Rating System.

The system is said to be based on a multi-stakeholder approach.

It uses a diverse information collection and verification approach, which relies on experiences of stakeholders and experts.
