The recently released report by The Economist Intelligence Unit has ranked Lagos, Nigeria as the third worst city to live in while maintaining its position at the lowest rungs of the Global Liveability index.
Lagos placed 138th out of the 140 cities ranked in the latest liveability survey, just above war-ravaged Tripoli and Damascus.
The report stated “Of the poorer-scoring cities, 13 continue to occupy the very bottom tier of liveability, where ratings fall below 50 percent and most aspects of living are severely restricted. “Continued threats from groups like Boko Haram acts as a constraint to improving stability in Lagos,’’
The top five best countries to live in, according to the report, includes Australian; Vienna, Austria; Vancouver, Melbourne, Canada; Toronto, Canada; and Calgary.
Lagos scored highest in culture and environment, followed by infrastructure. It scored lowest in stability.
